Back in Isaiah 9, Christ was promised in these terms: “To us a Son is given.” It conjures up the image of a gift tag wrapped around the ankle of the baby Jesus. It reads, “FROM God, TO You.” centuries later when the promise is fulfilled, the angels remind us of this ultimate Christmas present: “A Saviour has been born to you.”(v11). This is the meaning of Christmas, the Father has given you His all, His heart and soul, His pride and joy. As you look to the manger, how can you deny that God is for you? He has pledged His Son to you in flesh and blood. And since God has not withheld from you His only Son, how will He withhold anything from you (Romans 8:32).
PRAISE God for Christmas. PRAISE Him for being the selfgiving God that Christmas reveals.
