As we gaze upon the beautiful
nativity scene, we are captivated by our tiny newborn King. The
Messiah has come, and it is time to celebrate. Christmas in all of
its glory is beautiful and breathtaking, God himself has come to
us, to be our Immanuel.
In the background, we see the shadow of the cross. The tiny
helpless baby, God himself, is the
Savior of the World.
We owed a debt for our sin, the punishment should have been our
death, but God in His love for His children sent His son to take
our place to receive our punishment.
No one has ever suffered more than, Jesus. He faced hell for us so
that we don't have too. The magnitude of the gift we have been
given is far greater than we can even begin to imagine.
One day, we will see Jesus face-to-face, and at that moment we will
begin to understand the marvelous gift we have been given in Christ
Jesus. We will have all of eternity to celebrate God's love for
