Have a few friends talking about Christmas in July. One reminisced about the ‘baby Jesus’ in a manger.
Oh, how the enemy would like to keep Him there!
The last verse of Hebrews 9 says, “so Christ was offered as a sacrifice one time to take away the sins of many people. And he will come a second time, not to offer himself for sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”
When He comes to bring salvation, He’s not coming as a baby.
“Then I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. The rider on the horse is called Faithful and True, and he is right when he judges and makes war. His eyes are like burning fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him, which no one but himself knows. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.” – Revelation 19:11-13
Regarding our salvation?
“1. preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss.
2. deliverance from sin and its consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Christ.”
I love when the dictionary gets it right!
Are you waiting for Him?
