What if I told you that the reason for Christmas was actually because of the wrath of God? Well it’s true. God’s wrath burns hot against sin and Jesus had to come in order to save us from our just penalty. The coming of Christ at Christmas teaches us all that we desperately need a Savior. A Savior implies that we need saving from something. That something is sin and eternal destruction in Hell.
Ever since the fall of mankind into sin our relationship with God has been severely broken. But there is good news. In His grace God promised to reconcile this broken relationship through the coming of a Savior who would deliver us from the sin and death that ensnares us all. This is the purpose of Christmas, to save lost sinners from the wages of sin, which is death. The coming of the Christmas Child and what he would accomplish is the only hope for mankind. All Scripture builds up to, leads up to, and fills up in the incarnation, death, burial, resurrection and second coming of the Christmas child, Jesus our Lord!
