Celebrate Jesus | Life & Legacy – December 24, 2017
The little innocent child that we celebrate on this special evening is for more than the “gentle Jesus, meek and mild” of the manger scene. The Prophets declared that this child would live a perfect life, die by crucifixion, be resurrected from death, ascend into heaven, and sit at the right hand of God. Those prophecies include: Psalm 22:16, Psalm 16:10, Isaiah 53:10-11, Psalm 68:18, Psalm 110:1. They are fulfilled in: 1 Peter 2:21-22, Luke 23:33, Acts 2:25-32, Acts 1:9, and Hebrews 1:3. With such an astonishing life and legacy, why does the world fear or ignore the reality of this baby’s existence and the transformation He offers?
