Jesus is the only Reason for the Season. Without the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, there would be no forgiveness of sins. He is the only reason we are all still alive. Without the cleansing blood of Christ, we would all be wiped out long ago. God the Father cannot tolerate sin. Christ is praying for us daily. He is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. Imploring the Father God to have mercy on us. It is up to each one of us to repent and get our hearts right with God. Jesus said..."I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, no man cometh unto the Father except by me". So there you have it. No other way through those pearly gates, except through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Thank you Jesus for coming to earth for us. Amen ! I John 2: 26-29.
