Jesus came to bring a message of love, hope, peace and blessing; He shows us how to overcome the evil that is in the world, how to resist temptation. Above all, Jesus came to reconcile us back to God and to each other. The Bible says that God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but that through Him we might find deliverance. Isaiah prophesied, 'The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned... For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given'.

The message of Jesus can bring hope and healing into your life. Jesus is not remote and distant; God sent His Son into the world to live as you live, to experience life as you do; He came down to deliver and set you free. Will you receive His love today? This is the core of the Christmas message: God so loved you, he sent His Only Son, so that you might not perish but have everlasting life.

'Jesus came down and stood in the midst of the people': The message of Christmas has a similarity with Easter. Jesus is not distant; He is not just the Son of God in Heaven, but He came down to us here, on earth; He lived as we live; felt the same emotions; He was despised and rejected; His very Name is Emmanuel, God with us.

Don't be afraid; only believe! If only we could hear the Words of Jesus; in your life, in your problems today, if you will only believe and not be afraid, that problem which looks insurmountable, that situation which appears permanent, will change by the power of Jesus' Name. People may tell you that your problem is too far gone, that it is too late for a miracle; Jairus was told in Mark 5.35, "Don't trouble Jesus anymore, your daughter is dead", but Jesus will say to you, as He said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; only believe".
