|Jesus was born to die.|
The incarnate Christ was forever changed when the Word of God became flesh. The second person of the Trinity laid aside the benefits of His deity to subject Himself to the creation He had made so He could redeem that same creation from sin. When Jesus was resurrected, He had an immortal body with scars He will have forever. …Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into my side…(John 20:27).
God’s plan for the ages was redemption for His creation.
For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you (1 Peter 1:20 NKJV).
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel (Genesis 3: 15).
But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be thepropitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10).
Jesus really is the REASON we have the SEASON, for without Him not only would we not have Christmas, but we wouldn’t have Resurrection Day. And Resurrection Day is the reason He was born.
May your Christmas be blessed and happy!
