People today are familiar with the Christmas story.
Their not sure why Jesus came.
That’s what has been covered over by the holiday hype.
The writer of Hebrews sheds a bright light on the “why” of Christmas in Hebrews 10:5-10.,
He starts, “When Christ came into the world…” This is the holy night we sing about and celebrate.
In this passage we learn that Jesus came into world to carry out the will of His Father.
He came to establish the New Covenant.
And he did when he cried out, "It is finished!" from the cross.
And in this New Covenant, God remembers your sins no more.
And he came to make you holy by offering his body once and for all.
This is the “why” of Christmas.
Let’s let the world know. It’s good news.
