The Word of God is the Son of God, Jesus, who took on flesh,the body of man that He may restore all mankind to Himself.
John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. NKJ
Christmas envelops the spirit of giving and grace. It is during this season more than any other that people are moved to give charitably to others and to those who are in need. It is in this Spirit that Christ came as a gift of grace and love to all mankind bringing with Him mercy and peace that we may know His joy.
Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men. NKJ
Luke 2:10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. NKJ
This good news of great joy is for all people, nations, tribes and tongues. Christ being the creator and sustainer of all that exists, He came to rescue His creation. Though we all were sold into bondage through the rebellion of sin, the love of Christ came to redeem and deliver us from this captivity.
Revelations 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands. NKJ
Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recover of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; NKJ
All heaven and earth rejoiced at the coming of our Savior, Lord and King. The living Word of God became flesh, the Son of Man and lived among His creation. We now can walk in restoration and live in love and fellowship with God our Father. The love of God is relational in that it is displayed in relationships as father and son, as husband and bride and as brother to brother and as friend to friend.
John 20:17b….but go to My brethren and say to them, “I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.”
The gift of grace and life that Christ brings to us in our daily lives deserves the same adoration and worship that He received at the announcement of His birth.
Matthew 2:10-11 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshipped Him. NKJ
