Luke 2:11 A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master.
Sin is man’s tragedy: Jesus is God’s answer. It was the only way salvation of sin could be effectively provided.
GOD SENT HIM BECAUSE HE LOVES US
John 3:16 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one, and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.”
JESUS REVEALS GOD TO US
John 1:18 No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-Expression, who exists at the very heart of the Father, has made him plain as day.
WHEN WE TRUST HIM HE SHOWS US OFF
1 Timothy 1:15-16 Here’s a word you can take to heart and depend on: Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. I’m proof–Public Sinner Number One– of someone who could never have made it apart from sheer mercy. And now he shows me off–evidence of his endless patience–to those who are right on the edge of trusting him forever.
