Mt 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

He will save His people from their sins.  What a wonderful thing.  There is no way we can save ourselves from our sins.  There is no way we can ever be good enough.  Jesus was sent by God the Father to save His people from their sins.  Who are His people?  His people are those who believe Jesus is the Son of God, that He came to earth to die on the cross and take on our sins, that they want Him to be the Lord of their lives and have taken Him into their hearts and minds and desire to walk in obedience to all He said.  When we have done this we become ‘His people.”  Each of us must answer if we are among His people.  We must do more than believe and accept.  We must live the way He showed and taught us to live.  Advent is quickly coming to a close.  Let each of us be sure we are ready to help prepare the way for our Lord.
