The historic record of the birth of Christ can be found in Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 2:1-20.
Unlike any other baby, the one born that night in Bethlehem was unique in all of history. He was not created by a human father and mother. He had a heavenly pre-existence (John 1:1-3, 14). He is God, the Son—Creator of the universe (Philippians 2:5-11). This is why Christmas is called the incarnation, a word which means “in the flesh.” In the birth of Jesus, the eternal, all-powerful and all-knowing Creator came to earth in the flesh.
Why would God do such a thing? Why would He come as a baby, instead of appearing in power and majesty? Why make Himself a true Man and live among us, when He knew full well how terribly He would be treated?
It was LOVE! It was necessary, if you are to be saved!
For God so loved us, and so, He deserves only the best. Let us give all the best to Him this Christmas. This is the reason why we celebrate Christmas.
“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” -Matthew 2:11
