….I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly-John 10:10b
Many are celebrating to day the coming into the world of the savior Jesus the Christ. Even pagans join in the celebration. Some are celebrating by drinking to stupor, some celebrate by engaging in all forms of immorality. Many try to give themselves a good meal and spend good time with their families. But friend do you know why Jesus was born? In this journey of your life have you sat down to really try to know for yourself why Jesus came into the world? I for one do not celebrate Christmas per se but I celebrate Jesus every day for making me come to know the power of the living God Jehovah. In this short write up I’ll try to make the reader know why Jesus was born so that they can take advantage of the opportunity given to them to fulfill destiny.
Jesus is Word of God spoken through the mouth of the prophets of old, the word of hope, salvation and redemption. The word that was with God in the beginning with which he created the universe and all that dwell in it. He is the word that came to pass before now, that is being fulfilled now and that is to come. God still sends Jesus to us every day; how? You may ask, each time he sends you his word he is sending him your way. And what is the mission of Jesus in the world? He said: ‘I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly’.
His purpose has been made clear to you, that you can have life in abundance. Friend you can have life in abundance. To have life in abundance means to be filled with the fullness of God bodily. Many are breathing, moving about but they don’t really have life. Many have money which is good but they do not really have life. To have life means to be in charge, to be in control of the affairs of your life in every way. To have life is to live your life on purpose; not being a victim of the thief satan whose mission is to steal, kill and destroy. To have life means to always enjoy the powers of the world to come here and now. To have life is to live with a knowing that God will never fail you nor disappoint you.
Friend, are you just celebrating today because others are doing so? God is not religious neither does he judge men by their doctrinal beliefs. But he rewards those who seek him diligently (Hebrews 11:6). Your life is an opportunity to seek and hunger after Jesus the living word of God who loves you above everyone else. Who is not interested in your continuous suffering, sighing, wallowing in pain and distress. He desires that you shine and reign in life in your own path of life which his hands crafted exclusively for you (Psalm 16:11). Every star shines and differs from the other in glory (see 1 Corinthians 15:41).
He was sent by God to break the seals over the word (the bible) by his blood (see Revelation 5:1-5). So that by looking into the word constantly you come to know your divine right and who you ought to be in Christ. And you receive grace to become. As it is written ‘as many as received him to them he gave power to become the sons of God’ (John 1:12). There are so much treasures hidden in Christ that men especially the African race is yet to take advantage of (see Colossians 1:26-27). Christ is the wisdom of God that brings about elevation and development of man in every way; be it scientifically, spiritually, socially, mentally or psychologically. Are you a Christian? Stop playing church or religion. Get to know Jesus the word by studying the scriptures every day and listening to God-inspired bible teachers then your eyes shall be opened to see the treasures hidden in Christ Jesus. And as you take your part in him, you won’t wait for only Christmas day to celebrate God in him. Now you want to know Jesus?

The God that has made you see the end of this year shall make you see the end of 2017 and beyond! Shalom!
