The meaning of the Christmas event itself is plain; clear; undoubted: “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you, he is Christ the Lord” Luke 2:11. Always remember that Savior and Christ the Lord, refer to the same person and to his triple purpose. He would forgive sinners, be Israel’s Messiah and Rule with All Authority over heaven and earth.
Always remember that Jesus Christ came first of all FOR himself. Christians sometimes say we also are the reason for the season. But no. Forgiveness of our sin is the reason the season has such delight for Christians, but not the primary reason Jesus came. Since he fulfilled Genesis 3:15, he came as PROOF of God’s sovereignty. Before Jesus could save anyone he had to prove he had crushed Satan’s head. He did that for himself, proving he could do anything he pleased, including be Savior of the world.
Jesus came for himself. To confront and conquer Satan, death, sin and Hell. For himself he did it ALL to PROVE GOD ALONE is the Original Power and no other exists.
He then graciously includes us in his victory. End Part I
