When Jesus came on the earth for just over 33 years, He came as the Son of Man. He was the Son of God who set aside His deity and took on the form of a servant by becoming a man born of Mary into this world to be our Saviour.
During His earthly sojourn He did many great things called miracles:
- He turned water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana!
- He healed all the sick He came in contact with!
- He raised the dead!
- Fed thousands of people with a small lunch provided by a young boy!
He was whipped and beaten for us!
He went to the Cross of Calvary and there He died a criminals’ death for us!
He went into hell and defeated the devil and death for us!
But God raised Him from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit and now He sits at the right hand of God almighty in heaven interceding for us!
He has given us the victory to enjoy and share with others now, this Christmas season!
1 Cor 15:57 NKJ But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Cor 2:14 NKJ Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
In Nehemiah 1:5 Nehemiah prayed; And I said: “I pray, Lord God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You and observe Your commandments."
Nehemiah called God an AWESOME God; so Jesus was AWESOME when He walked on the earth and did all that He did at His Father’s command.
John 20:30-31 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that believing you may have life in His name.
John 21:25 And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.
Jesus said in John 8:31-32 that if we continue in truth the knowledge of the truth sets us free from the limitations of our old life.
We are liberated to walk in the light of the New Creation realities when we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. The point I am making today is this; Jesus The Christ was so awesome and did so many wondrous things and is continuing to do so as we believe by faith, and yet we only know a very small part of the whole story and what He did!
If you haven't already, why not ask Him to come into your heart? Ask Him and He will show you the awesomeness of His holy presence and continue to work His mighty wonders in your life this Christmas.
