Christmas – He Came to Save

Luke 19:10   (KJV)   10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

It’s God’s earnest and loving desire that you and I—everyone—be rescued from the fires of judgment, from life and eternity without Christ. That’s the reason why Jesus willingly came. He was born to die for us—to give His life as a ransom for many. Not all are saved, luke-19-10-christmas-he-came-to-savebut all are salvable, and there are those who are and will be saved. We were once lost, but now we’re found, we were once blind, but now we see; we were once dead, but now we’re alive.

God’s eyes are still looking to and fro; Jesus, through His Holy Spirit is still knocking on the door of our hearts; the door for salvation is still open. Anyone, from the most moral sinner to the most hardened criminal, can be saved. All over the world, people just like us are looking for Jesus. For some, the process isn’t as easy and comfortable as we have it here in our free country. But against all odds, they find ways. With tears in their eyes and with indescribable gratefulness, they joyfully cling to the Savior, and bow in absolute surrender before the Lord.

The Lord never disappoints His own. He always sees us eye to eye; He always meets us at the point of our need, always, with a loving invitation to rest in Him. Others don’t understand this beautiful divine dynamics; they can’t understand how sinners such as I can be saved and accepted by a perfectly holy God. They can’t believe the genuineness of good drastic changes that transpire. But the Lord doesn’t have any problem with it. He knows His purpose is just getting accomplished. The salvation for which He came is happening, proven by genuine repentance of those who experience it.
