This week is Christmas week. What an exciting week this is. What a time of celebration as Christmas is all about the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Joy to the world the Lord is come. On earth peace good will toward all men. Jesus is born. The Savior of humanity has come to set people free from their sins.
The birth of Jesus Christ is so important to the world, but especially to America. We have seen the United States move away from the Lord and become a secular country. We have seen our nation pull back from the principles that are found in the Word of God. We have seen the amount of believers decrease over the last few years and so the celebration of Christmas which is all about the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is important to our country because Jesus is the only answer our nation has if it wants to survive and be the nation that it once was. The United States has tried everything possible to turn things around. We have thought a stronger military would help our nation and having a strong military is good. We have thought the power of our wealth would help us through hard times. We have thought politics and who our leaders are would change out nation around. But looking at these things and more, nothing has helped our nation spiritually or in any other way to become the nation we once were. In fact, a majority of Americans think our nation is headed in the wrong direction and I am a part of this majority, but I have the answer. The answer is to return to the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You see, we have tried everything to get our nation going in the right direction except for one thing. We have not turned to Jesus. We have seen that money is not the answer. We see that politics is not the answer. The only thing that is the answer is because Jesus is the answer. Christmas time is upon us. It is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ who came to earth to set people free, bring racial harmony, forgive people of their sins, bring hope to a nation who needs a lot of hope, to break the power of addictions, to bring joy and peace to peoples’ hearts and minds, to bring blessings from the Lord to our nation and salvation to all people who will receive Christ as their Savior and Lord. Merry Christmas……Jesus is the Answer!
