Unto us a Son is given. -Isaiah 9:6 NKJV
The most miraculous thing since creation happened when Jesus came to earth. When He entered the world as a baby, Jesus was God come in human form. He was Mary's baby, but He was God's Son. The Creator entered creation as a man.
Why did He do it? He came because His Father sent Him—not to impress us with His miracle powers so He could entertain us, not to educate us so we could learn more facts about heaven, not to provide us with new rituals so we could become more religious. Jesus came because we needed a Savior.
We had sinned and needed forgiveness. God wanted us brought back into a loving, holy, caring relationship with Himself. The only way we could ever be reconciled to God was by His Son coming and offering us His body as a sacrifice for our redemption.
What incredible love God has for you! Jesus came as a visible expression of that love...nothing is deeper than that love.
He came so you could have sweet communion with Him—a fellowship like no other. He came to be your companion always—a companion that is closer than a brother. He came so His presence could be within you—a heart-tangible presence. He came so you could be His holy possession—you can rest in the security of belonging to Him.
