‘And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Mat 1:21).
Who has not been disgusted by the mean streak in his heart? Who has not been annoyed by the evil bent in her soul? Who hasn’t loathed the weakness in his flesh and longed for deliverance? Psychoanalysis can’t redeem us from our depravity. Hypnosis can’t save us from our ingrained flaws. Religion can’t rescue us from our proud rebellion. Neither can theology, philosophy or education. Only JESUS can–the Son who was born to cure our sin-infected souls! He’s the long-sought-after remedy for the world’s sin pandemic and the solution to all human ills. He is the reason for the season.
