As we head into the holidays, we reflect on the goodness of God and His plan to redeem His beloved creation. The foundation of our Christian faith is based in the virgin birth of Christ. God the Father sent His Son to the Earth, free from the sinful nature of humanity, to provide a way for us to be in right standing with Christ. Christmas is the time we celebrate God stepping into His creation to live life beside us and become even more intricately woven with His people. His birth signifies God keeping His promise to crush the head of Satan and bring us back to eternal fellowship with Him in heaven.
Christmas is a magical time of year for many reasons, but let's not forget the real reason for all the celebration. Allow the Christmas story to align our hearts with Christ and move into a new year filled with the hope of the coming Savior.
