December 24 – GIVE JOY – Rescue

Read Luke 19:1-10

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10

You probably know the story of Christmas. A trip to Bethlehem. No room. A birth. A manger. Angels. Shepherds. A star. Magi. Expensive gifts. Most of us could recite the details of around Christmas.

But, do you understand the reason for Christmas? Why did Jesus come? Christmas is all about His great love for those far from God. He came on a search and rescue mission. He came to “seek and to save the lost.” He took a big risk in coming to earth and going to the cross. He did that in order to make it possible for people who sin to have a relationship with God. Zacchaeus was the man rescued in today’s reading. Every person needs that rescuing as well. Thankfully, Jesus offers that to everyone!

Give Joy Idea:

Make a plan to share the meaning of Christmas at your family celebrations. Make sure they understand why Jesus was born!
