After a life full of disappointments and sacrifice with little thanks, we see George Bailey, the main character from It’s A Wonderful Life, wondering if everyone and everything would have been better off in this life if he has never been born. As we wrap up our Christmas At The Movies, Pastor Sean asks the question, what would be different if Jesus has never been born? Would it really affect your life? And if so, how does it affect your today, your tomorrow, and the rest of your life?



What if Jesus had never been born? What if Christmas never happened?

What we do see is Jesus, who for a little while was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us, he is now “crowned with glory
and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.” 

[Hebrews 2:9-11]


If Jesus never came there would be no rescue from sin.

Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.

[Hebrews 2:14]


Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.”

[Hebrews 2:15]

If Jesus never came there would be no freedom from fear.

We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing,
he is able to help us when we are being tested.

[Hebrews 2:16-18]
