Jesus was Born
In High Point we have southeast Asian individuals who are Buddhists and Muslim. In most cases they know Christmas is the season that Jesus was born, but do not acknowlege the reason. Jesus, an eternal part of the One God, came to earth as the Son of God and was born of a virgin. Thirty years later he began a public ministry of sharing his story. Then in the prime of his life at age 33 he willingly gave up his life, suffering a painful death. He did this because since he was a part of the one God he could be a perfect sacrifice of the wrong activities of all people. The story of Christmas becomes complete when we know why Jesus had to come to earth. As I visit with my Burmese friends I want to enjoy Christmas with each person and want this good news to be a part of it. Merry Christmas!
