I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, so that I would be able to live with Him for eternity. Jesus, for me, is the most important and I couldn't go through life without Him by my side. Jesus is the answer to all the problems and issues of this world. A lot of the time Jesus is either disrespected or taken for granted. Most people don't realize how our past, present, and future are affected by Him. Jesus is monumental in history through His life, teachings, and character.
Birth of Jesus
Jesus Christ was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea. He was born of a virgin, Mary, who conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Before her son's birth, God sent an angel to her saying,
“ ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you,’ Mary was greatly troubled at his words and and wondered what kind of greeting his might be. But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give Birth to a son, and you are to give him the name of Jesus. He will be great and will be the called the Son of the Most High.’ ” (Luke 1:28-32, NIV).
Jesus was born in a stable and placed in a manger because all the local inns were full. “ And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. And she wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7, NIV). His birth was not the most ideal, especially for a king. After His birth, even the lowest of shepherds were in invited to see Him
"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of The Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths lying in a manger.' " (Luke 2:8-12, NIV).
This demonstrations God's love and the entire picture God paints for us through Jesus’ lowly Birth, despite how high of a position Jesus held/holds does also.
Jesus Upbringing and Ministry
Jesus was raised in Nazareth, a village located in northern Palestine. “When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.” (Luke 2:39-40). He followed after His earthly father, Joseph, and took up the trade of carpentry. It was standard in culture around Jesus’ time for one to have the same occupation as his/her father. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?” (Matthew 13:55, NIV). When Jesus was around 30 years of age, he began his public ministry. ...
