On the crossWherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye
also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy
priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus
Christ. Wherefore
also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief
corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be
confounded. Unto
you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be
disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made
the head of the corner, And
a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble
at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. (I Peter 2:1-8)

It was 2005 when Christmas last fell on a Sunday and it is
wonderful that we get to join together on this blessed holiday when
Jesus Christ came into the world to ultimately die for us so that we can
have the hope of salvation through Him. 

You
might recall last week that I began a two-part message series titled “6
Reasons Why Jesus Is So Precious”. Allow me to briefly review the three
main points.
1. Jesus is precious because His name is precious
– His name is a personal name
– His name is a powerful name
– His name is a permanent name
2. Jesus is precious because He is precious to the Father
– He is precious to the Father in His walk
– He is precious to the Father in His work
3. Jesus is precious because He is precious to the Scriptures
– He is the Scriptures
– He was upheld by the Scriptures
– He upheld the Scriptures
Today, on this Christmas Sunday morning, we want to address the last three reasons why Jesus Christ is so precious.
1.
Jesus is precious because He is precious to the Saints.
A. He is precious to the saints because of what He has done.
Hebrews
2:9 (separation from God) – “But we see Jesus, who was made a little
lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and
honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”
He has tasted death for every man.
B. Jesus is precious to the saints because of what He is doing.
What Is He Doing?

1. He is interceding for us. First John 2:1 reads, “My little
children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man
sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”
2.
Jesus is working on us. Ephesians 2:10 reads, “For we are his
workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath
before ordained that we should walk in them.”
2. Jesus is precious because of His promises.
A. He has promised to supply our needs. 
Philippians 4:19 reads, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
B. He has promised to snatch us away.
1
Thessalonians 4:13-18 reads, “But I would not have you to be ignorant,
brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as
others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose
again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are
alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them
which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a
shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and
the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in
the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one
another with these
words.”
3. Lastly, Jesus is precious because He is precious to the sinner who wants to be saved.
Jesus Christ said in John 3:7, “Ye must be born again.”
Dear
friend, do you know Jesus Christ for yourself? Do you know the One who
came into the world two thousand years ago today to ultimately die for
the sins of the world so that we can have the hope of salvation? Do you
know that Jesus is the real reason why we have Christmas? If you want to
know Jesus Christ on tis Christmas, allow me to show you how straight
from the Bible:
1. Accept the fact that you are
a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in
Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth
good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come
short
of the glory of God.” 
2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” 
3.
Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in
Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able
to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul
and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful,
and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers
and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in
the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second
death.”
 
4. Accept the fact that you cannot do
anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For
by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a
gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should
boast.” 
5. Accept the fact that God loves you
more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell.
Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.” 
6. With
these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord
Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you
this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be
saved.” 
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” 
If
you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation,
please pray with me the following simple
prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have
done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive
me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died
for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my
heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
