The Message of Nativity of Christ is Love

“So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.” (Gen. 3:24)

The Old Testament records that mankind had fallen, and had been driven out of paradise; but God in His continuing love, desired to restore man to his original state.
“When I passed by you again and looked upon you, indeed your time was the time of love; so I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine, says the Lord God.” (Ezekiel 16:8)

However, man’s restoration to his original pure state, was practically inconceivable. God defied the inconceivable with the only one answer: the Incarnation of the Son of God. The Lord Jesus Christ must take upon Himself a complete human body through which He would pay the punishment of death man himself should have paid. So great was man’s intent disobedience; and consequently, so great the price.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (Jn. 3:16) This is the main goal of God’s incarnation is LOVE

Man was in need for someone to heal his nature from sin, and to restore him to the life that he had lost due to his sin. It is true that God is full of love, yet He is Holy, therefore He should manifest His wrath against sin and His love for man. Manifesting His wrath against sin causes man to fear sin, which helps man understand God’s love for him. Here emerges the importance of redemption and of the salvation that Christ fulfilled on the cross.

But before the Lord Jesus Christ was to painfully pay for our sins; He would come to show us a real, true, and complete love. The Glorious Nativity is a limitless measure of God’s unceasing love for mankind.

This is the message of Nativity of Christ; LOVE.
