What is the Real Meaning of Christmas? (Matthew 1:18-25; Colossians 1:15-20)
For many, Christmas is the time to think of Jesus Christ as a baby in a manger. While we will agree that the birth of Christ is a special and miraculous event, it isn’t the primary focus of Christmas. The central truth and focus of the Christmas story is this: the child of Christmas is God.
Christmas is not about the Savior’s infancy; it is about His deity. The Christmas story was never intended to conceal the reality that God was being born into the world. But the modern world’s version of Christmas does just that. And consequently for the greater part of humanity, Christmas has no legitimate meaning at all.
How does one explain that God was this tiny infant born in a manger? Our minds cannot begin to understand all that was involved in God becoming man. But, yet He did. He did this without forsaking His divine nature or diminishing His deity.
He was fully human, with all the needs and emotions that are common to man. Yet, He was fully God; all wise and powerful. Biblical evidence is overwhelming that this child in the manger was the incarnation of God.
