Children and retailers love it. Parents spend months paying for it! Still, when it’s all said and done—and paid for!—Christmas means family, friends, gifts, and lasting memories. Ever wonder what Christmas means to God? After all, it began as the celebration of His Son’s birth. The Christ Child is more than just a convenient backdrop for holiday festivities. In fact, Jesus Christ came to earth on a mission. His birth set in motion a plan that eventually led Him to die…for all of us. The real meaning is not wrapped up in the Baby in a manger, but in what His birth, life, death, and resurrection accomplished.

Two thousand years ago, a baby was born in a stable. The stable was in a small town that was part of a defeated nation occupied by the Romans. The nation was Israel, the town was Bethlehem, and the baby’s name was Jesus. Over two thousand years later, people all over the world still celebrate His birth… but why?

The Bible tells us that Jesus was not an ordinary baby. In fact, this baby was the God of the universe clothed in human flesh. That’s right. Jesus is actually God, in human flesh, who came to this earth because mankind had been separated from Him by their sin. Jesus became a man so that He could reunite mankind with God.

The perfect gift! You would like to receive it. You would like to give it. You read the ads; you look through the catalogs. Unfortunately, there is no perfect gift—at least not in any store.

There is only one perfect gift. It gives more happiness than any other gift. It is so deep that it endures through the worst of times. It has meaning for every age and in every situation.

The perfect gift is a personal relationship with Jesus, the only son of God.

John 8:12 reads, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

If there is one truth that leaps out at us from the pages of Scripture at Christmas, it is this: Jesus came to be the Light of the world! Light came into this dark world when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Christmas is about light! We love to sing the Christmas carol, “Silent Night.” But this great hymn is not about night or darkness. It’s about the Light. The third stanza of “Silent Night” says, “Son of God, love’s pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace.”

We sing another Christmas carol, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” The last stanza invites us to “Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, risen with healing in His wings.”

We sing at Christmas because we have something to sing about! Light has come into the world, and we don’t ever need to walk in darkness again!

Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #35

In the first message of this two-part Christmas series, Daniel Whyte III talks about three reasons why Jesus Christ is precious to us.

1. Jesus is precious because His name is precious. His name is precious because it is a personal name, it is a powerful name, and it is a permanent name.

2. Jesus is precious because He is precious to the Father.

3. Jesus is precious because of His work.

2 Corinthians 9:15 reads, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.”

Once again it is the season for the giving of gifts. In the atmosphere of secrecy, love and thoughtfulness combine to plan surprises of delight. The home is aglow with fervent expectancy, as something desired—something needed—is carefully selected, wrapped and hidden away until the day arrives. In it all, however, there is a fresh reminder of God’s eternal plan of love to meet the dire need of man’s soul, and provide THE BEST GIFT to completely satisfy and delight his heart. This is the gift of unspeakable worth. This is God’s gift of eternal life. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

He is no doubt one of the most talented persons living today. He is an actor, director, playwright, entrepreneur, screenwriter, producer, author, and songwriter. He is the baddest man in entertainment. He wrote and produced many stage plays over the past two decades. In 2005, he released his first film, Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Since then he has produced other well-known plays and movies including: Madea’s Family Reunion, Daddy’s Little Girls, Meet the Browns, Why Did I Get Married?, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, and his latest Good Deeds. As of June 2011, his films had grossed over $500 million worldwide. Family, faith, and forgiveness are recurring themes in his movies, television shows, and books. In 2011, Forbes named him the highest paid man in entertainment, earning $130 million between May 2010 and 2011.

Growing up in an abusive home, his mother took him to church each week and it is here that he sensed a certain refuge and contentment. He says of his faith, “My faith is extremely important. I am a Christian, I am a believer, and I know had I not been a person of faith, I couldn’t be here in this place, and I wouldn’t be walking the path that I’m on now. And I think the greater good of the path I’m on now is to teach people to learn to forgive and move on, in a way that’s done through the healing power of humor. Because of my faith in God, because of my love and my belief–everything in my life, no matter how bad, work together for my good. His name is Tyler Perry.
