Day 5 - God sets the stage. Our Father’s view of Christmas.
John 3:16-17 - For God loved the world in this
way: He gave his one and only Son, so that
everyone who believes in him will not perish
but have eternal life. (17) For God did not
send his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but to save the world through him.
Remember Jesus’s words about the Father in the Sermon on the Mount? He said we
should revere His name as holy. That we should praise Him for His coming kingdom
and that His will be done here on Earth as it is in Heaven. The verses above reveal that
God’s entire rescue mission to save us started with our Father. Jesus was doing His will
at every point in His life.
Our Father doesn’t get as much press as Jesus at Christmas time, but really the whole
thing was His plan...
