For centuries there has always been speculation concerning the true story of the Birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but the historical record of His birth can be found well documented in the book of Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 2:1-20
Jesus was undoubtedly unlike any other baby existing on earth.
He was born on purpose with a specific purpose on a beautiful night in Bethlehem. A child who was not born the son of a human father and mother – He already had a heavenly preexistence (John 1: 1-3, 14).
Yes!! He is God, the Son – Creater of the universe (Phiilppians 2:5-11). He IS the Word and was born this day in human flesh to save us all from our sins. This why Christmas is called the incarnation, a word which means “in the flesh.”
Jesus, the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the world came to earth in the flesh.
Many of us may have wondered – why would Jesus come to earth as a human baby to save the world – instead of coming in his present body, in all His majesty. Why would He choose to live “among us” (which by the way is the meaning of one of his names he is known by – Immanuel – which means God among us). Why, when he knew how badly he would be treated and how badly he woould suffer?
One word “Love”
The Bible says, in St. John 3:16, “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but shall have ever lasting life.”
In my opinion 2 popular Christmas songs entitled It took a child to save the world, and Suddenly recorded and performed by Fred Hammond explain it best!
