The real Christmas story is the story of God’s Son becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He loves us! God loved His own and provided a way—the only Way—for us to spend eternity with Him. He gave His only Son to take our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full, and we are free from condemnation when we accept that free gift of love.
1 Timothy 3:16
