The miracle of Christ’s birth surrounds us with an event that is almost impossible for the human to comprehend; that the Son of God came down to earth, was born in a manger, with the purpose of saving mankind. God himself entered human history to provide the solution to our very need of salvation.
When Jesus was born, He was identifying ahimself with us; He came for all humanity to save us. He was born in a humble stable and made Himself accessible to all who would come and believe in Him.
This world was happy to welcome Jesus as a baby, but isn’t willing to celebrate Him as the sovereign King and the Lord that He is. Yet, Jesus still fulfilled His purpose because of love.
If there is a single word that would best describe what His birth is all about, it would be LOVE. Love is God’s innate nature. God created us as an object of His love. He has made you so that He can show you His Great Love; so you would love Him as well.
Have a highly favored New Year, everyone!
With warm greeting,
