The Christmas story details Gods inexpressible, infinite, awesome Son, sealed in perfection from His conception to His birth, wrapped in love, and provided by Gods grace as a gift to each one of us. From a past of pristine perfection and spotless purity in which Jesus existed throughout eternity past, He arrived on this planetbirthed in an animal enclosure with sheep grazing nearby . . . an enclosure that reeked with the odor of manure and urine and the earthly stench of sin. Many of us know this incredible story better than we know the lines from Clement Moores piece, Twas the Night Before Christmas. Have you ever wondered why God has us return every year to hear this familiar story? Because He wants us to know how much He loves us.
