In the beginning was the Word ... and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and lived among us ... But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, who were born ... of God.
On Christmas we celebrate Christ who became human to save us from sin, Satan and hell. By becoming human, he made it possible for humans to become divine (gods - Psalm 82:6; John 10:34) through him. Those who receive him and believe in his name are born of God (John 1:12-13). It's time to see ourselves as we are - sons and daughters of God. (1 John 3:2, 17b). Let's rise up in our spirit and live with confidence and strength, to defeat Satan and conquer in every trial, temptation, test and struggle, through praying and believing firmly in what the WORD (scriptures) says we are.
