As I look at that first Christmas over 2000 years ago, I begin to see the love of God in full form. Scripture tells us that sin entered the world thus causing death. God in His holiness must judge sin.
However, Scripture goes further for in John 3:16 we are told that God loves the world thus He sent His Son to take our sin upon Himself. When one thinks about that, they must come to the realization that while God is holy, He is also love. This truth is realized through the action of God allowing His Son to be born, becoming like us so we might become like Him. That my friends is love.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him” John 3:16
