Let the real story of Christmas pull you in.
Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.
It’s simple. A baby, wrapped in clothes, and lying in a manger.
The fuss was created by angelic messengers sent from God.
The angel Gabriel had appeared to Mary nine months earlier.
The angel Gabriel told Mary what name she was to give to her newborn: Jesus.
This baby, called Jesus by His mother,
will also be called -
the Son of God.
Later on, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph, Mary’s fiancé.
To Joseph, this angel revealed that this Child will save His people from their sins.
This baby will have a third name - Immanuel. It means “God with us”.
Why did God’s Son become a human baby, Jesus?
To save the people from their sins.
He needed a body to do that.
He was buried.
His human body,
now crucified, dead, was buried.
He was raised from the dead with a supernatural, glorified, human body.
So now, God’s Son, dwelling in flesh, pleads for us before His heavenly Father.
