Christmas in July

Greetings again. This particular testimony is from my beloved mother, who is a devout, fundamental believer in Jesus Christ, and a wonderful woman. She wrote this to her family last Christmas, to make clear her beliefs on Jesus Christ and God's plan of salvation, and to edify her family. I am pleased now to share her words with anyone who has ears to hear.

The Risen Christ

My heart was elevated today as I contemplated the majesty of Jesus' triumph over sin and death upon the cross, and what it means to be born again. To be born again as the Bible explains it, has nothing to do with church affiliation or water baptism, but instead is by grace through faith, which we place in Jesus Christ when we confess and believe on Him as our Lord and Savior. When He agonized on the cross, it was not the pierced hands and the taunting jeers that caused Him so much hurt, but the undiluted wrath of the Father poured out on Him for our sakes, to punish the totality of our sins in Christ's person.
