We all want what's new and popular. We get in debt for it and often sacrifice what matters most so we can have it. What if what we really need is what’s always been there? When we build on the right foundation, everything changes.
Why did Jesus come? Why did He have to be born as a human? What was the point? We’re going to answer those questions this Christmas Eve. God loved the world so much that He sent His Son to save it. But, He didn’t just come to save the world. He came to show His love for you.
The cross proves that everybody is somebody that God loves. He came and lived with us to prove that everyone is loved by God and we all bear His image. He came to show us that it is possible for us to all love each other like He loved everyone.
When Jesus went around healing people He did it one person at a time. He didn’t have to do it this way, but He did. Jesus came to show us that God cares about the individual. He loves every one of us in a very personal, and real, relationship.
Most of what we think we know about God probably came from some pretty unreliable sources. Even when we look at other Christians, we don’t get a very accurate picture of who God is. That’s one of the reasons that Jesus came. He came to show us what His Father looks like.
