Without Sin There Wouldn't Be Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 2016
Matthew 1:21, “And she shall
bring forth a son, and thou
shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
The entire reason why God sent His only begotten Son into the world is because men are sinners! If it weren't for our sins, there would have been no need for Christ to be born. Thank God for the dear Savior!!! Consider our precious text Verse... Matthew 1:21, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” The sole legitimate reason for Christmas is to honor and celebrate the birth of the precious Savior, whose primary purpose for being born was to make a way of escape for sinners. Romans 5:9, “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” If it weren't for our sins, there would be no Christmas, because the Savior never would have been sent into the world. I'll bet you never thought of Christmas in that way before, and it is a beautiful thought indeed!
If we deny that we have sinned, we are calling God a “liar.” 1st John 1:10, “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” God the Father sent His only begotten Son into the world to pay for everyone's sins, so that all men could be saved by faith. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” The heathen world views Christmas as a mere religious holiday, commercialized to the point that it no longer holds much meaning. My friend, the entire reason why Jesus was born into the world is because you are a sinner! I am a sinner! We are all sinners! Everyone has sinned. Thus, everyone needs a Savior!
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God!!! What a blessed thing God has done for humanity by giving us the gift of His dear Son! It was our sins that nailed Jesus to the cross! The whole purpose for Christ's birth was to SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS. Matthew 1:21, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” The holy Bible teaches that salvation came first to the Jews, time-wise, and then to the Gentiles (i.e., the rest of the world). Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Christ died for ALL!!! 2nd Corinthians 5:15, “And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.” Revelation 1:5, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.” WHAT A PRECIOUS SAVIOR!!!

“And brother, any time anybody ever casts any reflection upon the accuracy and the inspiration—verbal inspiration—of this Bible, I'll guarantee you he was inspired by the demons. I'll guarantee you! I don't care if he's got a 'reverend' in front of his name. I don't care if he has a clerical collar on. I don't care what school he's been to. He's of the Devil if he says that the Bible is not verbally inspired by God!” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a great quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “Satan's masterpiece.”
