Christmas is all about Second Chances
That is exactly why Jesus came to earth to be born as a baby--to give us a second chance. He is God and left all his rights and privileges behind to come and be born in Bethlehem. It was for you and for me. It was for new life. It was to some day grow up and take our place on a cross and die. It was to give us a second chance at a relationship with God.
Just like any present we receive, it is not truly ours until we open the package. In the same way, Jesus was God's gift to man to make a way for us to be reunited with Him. John 3:16 says that He was born for ALL of us, "For God so loved the world, that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." He was a gift to you. A present for eternity. Don't let it sit unopened. Receive the gift and open it to a second chance this Christmas.
