I want to wish you and all your family a very Merry Christmas.
Recently, I was thinking of this older post (on my other blog) about What Christmas Means to Me. I was thinking that the purpose of God the Father sending Jesus (and Jesus being obedient to the Father) is not about Jesus being served, and not about Him living a good life. The coming of the Son of God was about Him living a life of service, and ultimately about His dying for our sins.
Or, as Ryan Welsh puts it, Christmas Isn’t Just About Baby Jesus; it’s about the man of Jesus, who died on the cross.
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28
Let our lives be more like that of Jesus, serving and laying down our lives for others.
