Christmas Commitment Time!


Some people think about Jesus each year at Christmastime.  Deeply touched, they resolve to know him personally.  Then the moment passes and the pressures of a new year lead them away from the manger.  There is great danger in coming near to Christ but never making a commitment.

You can’t cram for heaven the way you cram for a chemistry exam.  You can’t take a crash course to get into heaven.  Sooner or later, you’ve got to make a personal commitment that Jesus Christ will be your Lord and Savior.  Every time you put it off, it becomes harder the next time.

Is there hope in the world?  Yes!  Hope invaded the world 2,000 years ago at Bethlehem.

And if we want that hope to invade our lives, we must do what the shepherds did so long ago.  We must come to Bethlehem and bow before the newborn King.  Hope is available but only to those who will humble themselves and bow in faith before the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Do you believe he is the Son of God from heaven?
  • Do you confess that you are sinner?
  • Do you admit you need a Savior?
  • Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?
  • Are you willing to trust him as your Lord and Savior?
  • Will you bow before him and crown him as your King?
  • Is there room in your heart for Jesus?
  • Will you bow before him?

May God give you grace to make room in your heart for him. Amen.
