John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him, shall not perish but have eternal life." NIV

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." KJV

God did not anoint a human baby to be the saviour of the world. God did not make a sudden decision to redeem His people by sending Jesus. The child that was born in Nazareth 2000 years ago was the Son of the Most High God. His birth was planned from eternity, His life was in every way exemplary of the Father. His death was the reason God sent Him, so that you and I could be reconciled to God and live in eternity. We celebrate His birth because for us, this was the long awaited promise that death was not our enemy and we are safe in His kingdom forever, if we believe.

Heavenly Father, we praise You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ and for the love You have for us that made that happen. Forgive us for taking that for granted. Forgive us for getting caught up in the worldly ideas and practices of this season. Give us boldness to live and speak the true meaning of Christmas. In Jesus precious name we pray, Amen.
