Topsy Turvy Love

Read: Matthew 1:21:

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins."

What do you think of first when you think of Christmas and Easter? The gifts you’ll receive? The party at school? The songs you’ll sing? The eggs and candy to find?

The real reason for the holidays is to celebrate the love of Jesus Christ. Every year during the Christmas holiday, I feel a little bit sad because, even though we celebrate His birth, I know Jesus Christ was born to die. But Jesus rose to live again! That day, He changed the world forever. He turned this world topsy-turvy! We get to celebrate His resurrection every year on Easter Sunday.

And the day you ask Jesus into your heart is the day you are changed forever.

“God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.” (John 3:16 CEV).

One day, if we have faith in Jesus, we can live with Him. For how long? Forever and ever!

Topsy Turvy Tip: As you celebrate the holidays, remember – Jesus gave his life for you because He loves you.

Life without Christ is Topsy Turvy!™
