What does Christ mean on Christmas?

I am writing this on Christmas Day 2020. What an year it has been so far. So many firsts.

This was the first time in my life that I witnessed, and became a part of a global pandemic.

This was the first time in recent history that the entire world literally went into a state of lockdown. No one was allowed to leave home, unless they were essential service personnel.

We soon realised what and who were truly essential.

Apart from the essential physical bare necessities like air, water, food, nothing else really mattered. I realised that so many industries and sectors were not really essential at all!

The essential spiritual and mental needs of people remain, for which God has had a plan all along, in the person of Jesus Christ.

He is called the sinless substitutionary sacrifice, who defeated sin and death by undergoing the ultimate punishment for sin, death.

And because He was sinless, death could not hold him. The tomb where He was buried stands empty, in sharp contrast to the tombs of every other religion or idea.

This just shows that Jesus Christ was not just an idea, or the founder of another religion.

He came to restore humans to a relaitonship of Shalom to their maker, the triune God consisting of God the Father, Jesus Christ the son who took on human form, and the Holy Spirit.

And that is why we realised this:

Man tries to be good and holy but fails. Only God can transform us.

Jesus Christ, theamazing hyperdimensional being who transcends time and space and will come again in the future to rule the earth, as revealed in the prophetic book of Revelation.

I wish you all joy, peace, shalom and hope, as I have trusted, in the one who holds the future, Jesus Christ the King.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas
