It is Christmas Eve and we are anticipating the celebration of the birth of Jesus. We celebrate that Jesus came, because God sent Him to be our Savior:

I John 4:9-10 “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”

Galatians 4:4-5 “But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption as sons.”

Mark 12:6  “Therefore still having one son, his beloved, he also sent Him.”

As we rejoice that Jesus came, thank God that He sent Him: to save us from our sins, to redeem us, and to adopt us as His children. As you open up your gifts on Christmas morning, thank God for this precious gift of salvation through His Son:

I John 5:11 “And this is testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

II Corinthians 9:15 “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!”

Merry Christmas!
