Better Than Expected

Here we are on Christmas and we celebrate the arrival of the Lord Jesus. He is the Savior of the World. We are most glad that the arrival of Jesus means the casting down of every loft thought raised up against God. Furthermore, the nations and all enemies will submit to Jesus. Of His government there shall be no end. This is the long expected Messiah.

And it gets even better. The world could be saved by Jesus and you could still be lost in your sins. Every knee will bow but those who bow in humility and honest worship receive a great reward. Whatever you have done, said, or thought is washed clean in Jesus Christ. We are not only saved, but cleansed, made whole, healed, received by God, reckoned as righteous, made holy in Christ, reconciled, delivered, and filled with the Holy Spirit. All of this to the glory of God, resulting in great joy to us, to you. This is even better than we expected.
