Matthew 1:21 “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
We end where we began, with God. We began with God the Father and we end our journey with God the Son. Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus. He came to save His people from their sins. The Christmas story is more than just a baby lying in a manger. It’s about God, creator of all, invading His creation, to lead them back to Himself. It’s about God, making a way for our sins to be forgiven. It’s about God sending His own Son, to be a sacrificial lamb, to die for my sins and yours. It’s about God loving you so much He did that.
As we celebrate His birthday today, let us remember the immense love which is behind the whole story.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”
That is what the Christmas story is all about. God’s love for you and me!
