“Unto us a Son is given” Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
When He came to earth it was the most miraculous thing that had happened since creation. When Jesus entered the world as a baby He was God come in the flesh. He was Mary’s baby, but He was God’s Son.
The Creator entered creation as a man. Why did He do it? He came because His Father sent Him—not to impress us with His miracle power so He could entertain us, not to educate us so we could learn more facts about heaven, and not to provide us with new rituals so we could become more religious.
He came because we had sinned and needed to be forgiven, because God wanted us brought back into a loving, holy, caring relationship with Himself, and because the only way that we could ever be reconciled to God was by His Son coming and offering up His body as a sacrifice for our redemption.
What incredible love is in the heart of God for you. Jesus came as a visible expression of that love…nothing is deeper than that love.
He came so that you could have sweet communion with Him…nothing is sweeter than that communion.
He came to be your companion always…nothing is nearer than that companionship.
He came so that His presence could be within you…nothing is dearer than that presence.

“Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.”
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, then you can pray this prayer right now and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
