It’s a wonderful season. The wife is cooking and making gifts, it’s time to retreat from work and relax, and it’s time to remember the birth of the Christ.
If Christ was merely a good man or example for us, then there is no perfect sacrifice as a vicarious atonement for our sins. But He was God incarnate, and thus we have a savior.
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emanuel, while translated means, ‘God With us’” (Matthew 1:24, NASB).
We remember this event on which all of history turns and upon which all of history depends by giving gifts. This isn’t necessary to remember and worship Christ, but it has become customary. My wife honored me with this.
A 32 gun safe. Oh, and just for good measure, she bought me another nice weapon to go inside (you’ll soon see pictures of this too). And notice the power cord attached. No flashlights necessary to see inside.
Merry Christmas from me and my family to you and yours. God bless you for the new year. Worship the new born King.
