It's About the Cross
It's not just about the manger where the baby lay, or the angels or shepherds; it's not all about the bright and shining star or the wise men who traveled from afar ... it's about the Cross! Luke 15:10 - “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” John 3:3 - “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
It's about our sin and how Jesus came to be born once so that we could be born again! It's all about His precious blood that was shed and the stone that was rolled away. The beginning of the story is wonderful and great, but it's the ending that can save us ... that's why we celebrate!
