What do His birth, life, death, and resurrection mean for us? Did God send Jesus to erase the law of Moses? Did He come to condemn us? It is written in the gospels that God sent Jesus to complete and fulfill the law of Moses, to redeem us from sin and to teach us the truth.
We can’t see God face to face, but there is plenty of evidence around us, pointing us to the reality that God exists. The beautiful world that surrounds us, the birth of a child, our bodies, and the love we have for each other are the affirmation of God’s love for us.
We all know the drill, how we were conceived and born. Based on biblical evidence and other religious and historical writings – God did something miraculously different over 2,000 years ago. A happening that human minds can’t comprehend, one of the greatest events to occur in the history of the universe – the birth of Christ.
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16)
Since God is pure light and Holy, we can’t begin to reach to His holiness without a bridge between himself and us. So He sent His Spirit over a young woman, a virgin named Mary. Because of her purity, God chose Mary to be the mother of the Messiah. And she gave birth to a son, Jesus, whose name was chosen by God. So if Jesus is born of God’s Spirit, than He is definitely part of God. The story of His birth written in (Matthew 1:18-25)
God provided a WAY for us to come close to Him so that we might become the true children of God. Jesus is the WAY for our life. He is the WORD of God. God sent His WORD (His beloved son) to teach people about God’s Kingdom, a government in heaven which will ultimately bring peace to all mankind and help us to live righteously.
In (John 14:6) Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 1:1 says; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
For me, His birth was the one confirmation that He is who He claims to be.
Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”— a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).
