Introduction ~ There is a common saying that “Jesus is the reason for the season!”
Question ~ Is that a true and accurate statement?
Answer ~ No! At least not the way that I read all of Scripture and the Christmas account.
Explanation ~ If Jesus is not the reason for the season, then what is the reason for the season? Humanity and our sin is the reason for the season!
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
Conclusion ~ The reason for the season is not His birth but that we can have rebirth! Christ came to earth, lived a perfect sinless life, and in His death He stood before God as if He were us in order that we can stand before God as if we are Christ.
Critical Point ~ Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?
