All of ancient history looked forward to it, and all of modern humanity looks back on it. We see Christ’s birth as the beginning of God’s staggering sacrifice to redeem men from their rebellion. By our own sinful choices we were God’s enemies. Yet God was determined to reconcile us to Himself by healing the breach between us in the person of Jesus.
But when did the story of redemption truly start? Many would argue it began when the morning stars sang together and the angels shouted for joy (Job 38:7). When God, knowing humanity would refuse His Lordship, chose to speak us into existence anyway.
Christmas is a yearly celebration of God, His never-failing faithfulness, His limitless love, His boundless wisdom, His perfect humility, and you can keep going.
What particular characteristic of God do you want to focus in on this holiday season?
