While many will discuss whether Christians should even participate in Christmas celebrations (which is discussion worth having) one thing thing we all agree upon is that almost 2,000 years ago Christ took on human flesh and was born into this world. The Incarnation is truly one of the greatest miracles of God. Divinity took on humanity, He became like us. But He did not do this for a parlor trick, or because He was bored. Christ became man so that He could die for us. God took on flesh so that He could be executed in our place, to pay the price for our sins. Then He rose three days later, proving His power of death and giving a promise of eternal life to those who would repent and trust in Him.
As we consider the season of Christmas, and whether we should or should not celebrate it, let us dwell on the miracle of the Incarnation. Let us be in awe of His death and resurrection. And let us share with everyone, “It’s about the cross.”
well said Chris.
It is about the cross and the cross is impossible without the Incarnation. All glory and praise to God for His wonderful mercy, grace and love given to us in His Beloved Son and made possible to us through the death of Jesus Christ for our sins and His resurrection from the dead for our justification. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ and God my Father for Your Holy Scriptures that are the truth and give the way of salvation and are able to make us wise to salvation. Thank you Holy Spirit for your work of regeneration and conviction and guidance into the truth. Thank you Jesus Christ for Your perfect righteousness accounted to me and for Your propitiation for my sins, and thank You Holy Father for sending Your Son to be the Savior of the world!
