Over the next several weeks we are going to be looking at several Christmas

passages as we reflect on what Jesus came to do. Today, we are going to see that

Jesus was born to save us.

Purpose of Christmas:

Jesus birth is an awesome story and it gives us a great reason to have a holiday

to celebrate. I think for most people Christmas is probably one of the most

enjoyed holidays that we have. It seems to start right after Thanksgiving and

continue all month long, even spilling over into New Year's. Some people have

so much Christmas cheer that they leave their lights up half the year. But Jesus

didn't come just to give us a reason for a holiday. Jesus came to save us!

When new babies are born, a lot of times parents will send out a birth

announcement that has a picture of the new baby with the weight, length, time

and name of the new baby. For Jesus, His parents got the birth announcement, and

boy was it and incredible one!

Let's take a look at what happened.
