Naughty or nice

Being good never gets a person to heaven. Being nice is a gift from God but I have not read nor heard a sermon that says this gift is enough.

It takes the grace of God to forgive us for not being perfect. That Present was delivered to us on the day Emanuel was born. Though we are not sure of the exact date we celebrate it every December 25th.

The birth of our salvation from our inability to be good enough.

33 years after his birth he sacrificed himself as the final passover lamb not just for the Isrealites but for all of mankind and with these simple words"Father forgive them for they know not what they do", granted any who would by the simple realization that Jesus is God and that with a simple admitance that they sinned(missed the mark). Except that God plainly forgive us of our debt unto him no one could ever have eternal life.

One simple sentance saves you forever. It is-Jesus save me, forgive me of my sins.

Merry Christmas.
