Why Jesus Christ’s Birth Is Still Relevant Today

As time passes it seems more and more people are leaving or rejecting religion and claiming no need for it. Some may wonder what is the relevance and need of a Savior today. As we approach Christmas our attention should be turned to the first five letters of the holiday: Christ. His birth changed the world, and more than 2,000 years later it still has the power to change us.

During his lifetime Christ performed many miracles. The Bible shares many examples of Christ’s miracles. In Luke 5 verses 12–13 we learn of how Christ healed a man of leprosy:

“And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

“And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.”

Matthew 15 shares of Christ’s vast healing throughout Galilee. In verses 30–31 we read:

“And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them:

“Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.”

We may not be able to be healed in His physical presence, but Jesus Christ can still heal us today. As we exercise faith, repent, and follow Christ, we can feel His healing in our life. Watch this video to see how one man was rescued by Christ.

Just as the man in this video found hope and healing through Christ, so can we. Even thousands of years later, the humble birth of Jesus Christ is still relevant in our lives today.
