Throughout the Bible, God is faithful to bring about His plan to redeem and restore His people. The thread running through His Word is the anticipation of a coming Messiah and Jesus’s arrival as the Messiah.
At Christmastime, we turn our attention to Jesus’s birth. The moment when God sent His Son in the form of a man to be Emmanuel, God with Us. The One whom God gave all authority in heaven and on earth humbled himself to be born as a baby, raised in complete obedience to God the Father, and willingly laid down His life to pay the full cost of our sins. Jesus defeated sin, death, and the Devil through His life, death, and resurrection. Through His sacrifice, all who repent and believe are forgiven, adopted, and restored to fellowship with God.
This Good News, the Gospel, is the best, most expensive, and sufficient gift we can ever receive. No effort or good work could make us worthy of Jesus’s free gift of eternal life. “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9, ESV). ”
Jesus is the only Hope for a hurting world. He is worthy of our praise, adoration, and gratitude, and He is why we serve teen moms. Teen Mother Choices International longs to bring the Hope of Jesus to more communities in 2023. Please consider donating this holiday season. Any gift made between now and December 31, 2022, will be matched up to $30,000 to the praise and glory of God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
May you know the Hope that only Jesus provides and share the very best gift of the Gospel this Christmas with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
