The Fullness of God in Him, Part 2
Jesus Christ is our Redeemer! Remember that as you look at your nativity scene, Jesus was born to die! Yes, at birth, He was laid gently in a manger, but later, as the sacrifice for your sin and mine, at His death, he was cruelly nailed to a cross. His death is our redemption. And now those who worship Him are also required to die, to die to sin, to die to self! So, this Christmas season, enjoy some of the traditions but don’t devote yourself to them, devote yourself to knowing, loving and worshiping Jesus, the one whose birth we are celebrating! A birth that brings us eternal joy because of the perfect life, and atoning death that would come about as a result.
