The Message of Christmas – H.E. Anu’a-Gheyle Solomon Azoh-Mbi

The Message of Christmas – H.E. Anu’a-Gheyle Solomon Azoh-Mbi

The message of Christmas is about a unique and uncommon gift – the gift of Christ Jesus – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.’’ John 3:16 – That, friends, is the message of Christmas.

We are called to receive that message and that precious gift of Christ Jesus. We do so by acknowledging and accepting the lordship and sovereignty of Christ, the Saviour of the world. We are also called to respond to this good news of the coming of Christ. We do so when we share in Christ’s vision and mission for an inclusive bold new world.

It is, however, the change we experience in Christ that gives meaning to Christmas. Christ came to make all things new and in Him we are a new creation. He transforms us in at least four ways:
– He gives us a new name
– He gives us a new nature
– He gives us a new need
– He gives us a new nation

Contact with Christ inescapably leads to change and commitment to change, without which Christmas is just another occasion for mundane celebration.

Friends, God is ever moving us through changing seasons, challenging us with new beginnings, with new hustles and new heights to overcome, new territories to chart and to conquer. God loves the new and His ultimate call is for us to embrace and abide in the freshness of the new!

We have heard the message of Christmas. May we respond to it, that we may experience the true meaning of Christmas through our transformed lives.
