Was the birth of Jesus the beginning of His existence? The answer is no because He always was. In fact, the same God who created the heavens and the earth and said, “Let there be,” was the same God living inside of the human baby Jesus.
Jesus became a man, but He was always God. He was 100% God and 100% man on the earth, but He made Himself a servant – healing the sick, raising the dead, blessing the children, and washing the feet of the disciples.
The bible says,
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.John 1:1
Before He was Jesus, His name was “The Word.” He is from old meaning – eternity. He is the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. That’s amazing, and it’s true, but what does this mean for you and me today?
If God prepared for himself to be born in the virgin Mary, before the world began, for us to have eternal life, then it’s not impossible for Him to give us a future and hope in this life. Bethlehem wasn’t too small of a place for Jesus to be born, and you are not too small of a person for Him to take care of.
Yes, God sees you, loves you, and if you have put your trust in Him, then He is with you. He will never leave you, nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). He will not abandon you, nor is He willing to do without you. Merry Christmas and God bless you!!!
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins, and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
