"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." - John 1 V14

"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His  poverty might be rich." - 2 Corinthians 8 V9

We often during Christmas season  hear and read about Christ being born in a manger and poor shepherds visiting Him. There is greater depth and truth to this story. When Jesus came into this world, He left His heavenly glory and He became man, lowliest creature compared to the heavenly glory. He created everything by His spoken word and He became a creature in His own creation. He did all this for you and for me, that through Him we might be rich. By His death on the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ gave us access into heaven just by believing on His name and by faith receiving Him. Have you received the Lord Jesus Christ and gave all your self to Him? Come, and be rich by having faith in the Son of Man, the King of glory. Praise the Lord! 

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
