30 Day Jesus Challenge - Day 25 God's Gift of Christmas

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel.

Micah 5:2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.

These are just two of the Messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus.  Prophecy is the absolute undeniable proof that Scriptures are real, inspired, and trust worthy.  Alas, there in lies the rub.  Prophecy forces the issue of Biblical inerrancy (read here for more) and if the Bible is true then Jesus is true.

He is the Gift.  He is the reason for Christmas.

Messiah is the Gift of Christmas

Pray - Lord, on this day of celebration, I pray that the real and true meaning of Christmas find its place in my heart.
