So what is Christmas about?

 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Cor 5:7).

Universal and personal sin are the reasons why He became sin who knew no sin so that we might become his righteousness.

It is not about the baby who was homeless and was born in stone quarry carved out in the hills of Bethlehem- that is what Inn Keeper called a “stable”, and still is today in that part of the world. Remember they lived in the desert. They didn’t cut down trees to make stables

  1. No, it is not about the unbiblical three wise men. The Bible never said there were 3 of them Matthew 2:1-12 NKJV).
  2. It is not about the baby who was homeless and was born in stone quarry carved out in the hills of Bethlehem- that is what Inn Keeper called a “stable”, and still is today in that part of the world. Remember they lived in the desert. They didn’t cut down trees to make stables.  The stables were below the main residence of the house, historical and theological evidence can be found at this link. 
  3. It was not about Mary and Joseph.
  4. It is not about getting into debt to buy Christmas presents for everyone except the person whose birthday we are celebrating.

So why do we celebrate this season?

  1. It was because God became human and became sin so we would not have to pay that penalty ourselves!
  2. Because the 1st man sinned, thus leading all of humanity down the path of sin.
  3. But GOD sent His Son so that all of humanity can be free from the bondage of sin.
    We really should be celebrating the breaking of the chains of bondage over our lives.(Romans 5:12-17 NKJV) 
    We should be celebrating the fact that the guilt and shame that folks like to throw on us is a LIE because He became sin who knew no sin says we are indeed forgiven.
  4. God kept his promise to Abram and through his seed – Jesus – all of humanity is blessed. Our chains are indeed gone (Gen 22:17-18 NKJV).
  5. We have been set free because God sent His one and only Son Jesus to become sin for us.

No Washington, The President, Congress, nor The Supreme Court cannot, repeat, cannot bring America to its knees and or forgive sin. Only Jesus can, and did. And one day, when heaven is opened back like a scroll all who are living, will see that He is real and He is Lord. We thank you, Father God for sending your Son to become sin so that I and all of humanity could have an opportunity to be called your righteousness.

 

Sin is the reason
