The WHY of Christmas...

Christmas is here! Many people know the basics of the Christmas story: WHO? Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and more. WHAT? Jesus' birth. WHEN? about 2,000 years ago. WHERE? a stable in Bethlehem. The next question is perhaps the most important of them all. WHY? Why did Jesus come to earth? Jesus Himself answers this question in John 10:10, "I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” In Greek, abundant means: a life superior in quality, remarkable, extraordinary, uncommon, excellent, and with unsurpassed provision. Jesus loves you so much that He left His throne in heaven, lived a perfect life on earth, paid the price for your sins, and made a way for you to have a close relationship with God. He came to make you a new creation–free of sin, guilt, and shame. He came to give you access to the immeasurable love of God. I could go on–but I invite you to explore the WHY? of Christmas. Wise men still seek Him. -Sarah Johnson
