Good morning and praise the Lord dearly loved ones in Christ. Why do we celebrate the birth of our Lord? We do so because He is the full embodiment and expression of the grace of the living God. We celebrate His birth because in Jesus we have real, true, actual and joyful hope. The truth of Jesus' virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death, and bodily resurrection is the firm foundation for our present hope of His certain return.
Moreover, we celebrate the birth of our Lord because it frees us from having to chase after the idols of this world in a vain attempt to find complete healing, meaning, purpose, identity and well-being and frees us to enjoy a lifestyle of good works so that we can consistently point others to the hope that's in Jesus alone.
Why do we celebrate the birth of our Lord? We do so because through His virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death and glorious resurrection He has taken us as His own, dearly loved and treasured people.
