What If Jesus Did Not Come

I have just been sitting here thinking about Christmas, and this thought hit me, "What if Jesus had not come?" How different life would be... How different our world would be!
Think about that for a bit. If there was no Jesus, we would still be under the Law of the Old Testament. I think about this and I think where I would be if it were not for Jesus.
Actually, I don't even want to think about it. It saddens me that most people in this world have not discovered life that is found in Christ Jesus.

I am going to open this up for your input, and hope that many of you that cruise through each day will take the time to stop and post a comment this once. There are up to a hundred different visitors to this blog daily. I'd really like to get 50 or 60 people telling what Jesus means to them and/or how they feel the world would be different if Jesus had not come.
Come on folks... give me a Christmas present and add your comments.

I have been through some heart wrenching experiences; house fire, murders of family members, loss of jobs, miscarraiges. Any one of these could cause a breakdown in a person. I have witnessed others go through just one of these without the comfort of God's love and be devastated for life. God is truly my "strong tower." Without Him, I would be nothing. Without Him, I am nothing. I praise God for His goodness and all He has done, but most of all, I praise Him because He is! Thank you, Lord for Your wonderful, eternal gift!

Where can I start? What an awesome God, that He would make Himself of no reputation, to become a man and hang on that cross for me? All I can say is, like the Psalmist, "who is man, that You are mindful of him? The son of man, that You visit him?"

If were not for Jesus, I'd probably be face down in the gutter as a drunk, still trying to find meaning at the bottom of a beer bottle. I'd proably be caught impossibly deep in the horrors of pornography, where God delivered me out of. Who knows, I could be in prison, or even dead, had it not been for Jesus. I don't know what this world would be like if He hadn't come, but am I ever grateful that He did! Halellujah!

I can't really even begin to imagine what my life would be like. I have a hard enough time realizing who I was without him. It seems to be another person, disassociated with today.
I wouldn't know what joy and happiness are - things that I never truly experienced before.
I wouldn't know what real friends are or how to be a friend. (still learning)
I wouldn't know what is like to anticipate a future instead of dreading one.
I am a better mother with Christ than without.
I am positive that walking through this illness would be completely different - Locking myself further away, sleeping time away, giving up all hope. Instead, I have a lot to be thankful about what it has brought my way. Friendships, strength, a better view of my priorities, a vision.
I think that is enough for now.

~~~~Happy Holidays!~~~~ - Just playin'
Merry Christmas!

I am a sinner, but by the grace of God .... I was forgiven and redeemed because he loved me even while I was in sin. Before He payed the price, Christ gave me a glimpse into God's eyes, so that my path would be lit as I journeyed home.
