Jesus, the Word of God, was sent to earth as a baby to live as a man. He grew from a baby in the womb to the Savior on the cross. He lived among us, He ate with us, He healed us. By taking on flesh, He also took on our sins on the cross. His death on the cross is what granted us reconciliation with his father. May we never forget His sacrifice.
And we pray:
Dear God, You sent Your son to this fallen world to offer us atonement when we did not deserve it. Thank You for Your mercy and grace, O Lord. You sent the holy Word down to our world full of sin to shine like a light in the darkness. Knowing we are children of God, may we live like Your Son, Jesus Christ. In His precious name, Amen.
