"She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins."
Matthew 1:21 ESV
This baby was no ordinary baby. The King of kings was wrapped in those swaddling cloths. This did not at all diminish His divine nature or His kingship. Shepherds of low status, wise men of high status (the Magi) and angels of divine status all worshipped Jesus, the Son of God.
The Messiah, Jesus Christ, was born to save His people from their sins through atonement. He was born to die in their place as their substitute. All those who repent and believe in Christ shall be saved.
Praise God for His amazing grace. How truly sweet is that sound. The great chasm between God and mankind has now been closed and death is now only a shadow because of His great work on the cross.
Let us praise God and thank Him today and forevermore for His redemptive plan that He has chosen to carry out through Christ.
