When Adam and Eve first sinned in the Garden of Eden, mankind was separated from God’s presence. This separation broke God’s heart because He loves us more than we could ever know. But God had a plan for our reconciliation with Him. From the very beginning of human existence, Jesus was going to be a part of the story.
Christmas marks the beginning of God’s process to restore our relationship with Him through a New Covenant. The world waited thousands of years for God’s promised Savior, and then, finally, He was here. The One who would forever defeat sin and death became God with us.
As we enter this Advent season, recognize that God is true to His Word, and meditate on the truth that He loves you so much that He sent His perfect Son to be born so that He could have a relationship with you.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17)
Enjoy the day reveling in the presence of the Saviour of the world.
