Previously we were looking at how Jesus was a stumbling block to the Jews. 

John 6:53 (AMP)
53 And Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you believe in Me as Savior and believe in the saving power of My blood which will be shed for you], you do not have life in yourselves.



Indeed even today there are those who find Jesus a stumbling block instead of a Rock of salvation. Jesus speaks truth only, and some choose to believe what their flesh desires instead of truth.

John 15:5-7 (NIV)
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.



Jesus came to earth as a baby of humble birth. He grew up in the home of His mother Mary and foster father Joseph, a carpenter. The Word says He grew in wisdom and knowledge. When Jesus was ready to begin His mission in life~ to make His Father known to the peoples of earth, and to shed His blood for the salvation of all mankind, He set out and first chose 12 men to accompany Him. They became major players in Gods plan!




Now the peoples of His day knew a Messiah was coming, but they thought it would be a warrior that would be a conqueror for them. So the humble Jesus arrived, and many Jewish leaders of the time overlooked Him despite His teachings and miracles. Jesus presented a challenge to their authority and their way of life. He was a stumbling block to them, and so many missed out on the gift of eternal life Jesus brought.

 Today it is the same. Jesus speaks truth and does not present anything with ‘political correctness’. Many were offended in those days by Jesus’ words in John 6:53 above. The bluntness of His speech lost many of the disciples. Today it happens as well. There is a right and a wrong. There is truth! Many want to make their own rules rejecting God's commands.



Soon we will be celebrating Jesus' birth. The anti-Christian culture our government has been fostering the last 8 years has resulted in more emphasis on being politically correct than on honoring God. We each need to do our part to play a major role in proclaiming the true meaning of Christmas; Jesus is the reason for the season! WE can spread the good news of the Savior whose birth we celebrate. 


Yes, continue to rejoice in our Savior and teach our kids and share with friends the true meaning of Christmas! That God Himself became man to pay our sin debt that we may all spend eternity with HIM. All the wonderful lights of Christmas honor Jesus Who is the Light of the World! Let us see and rejoice in Him!

JOY TO THE WORLD! THE LORD HAS COME!
