Birth Story (11)

Verses 4 and 5 of our Bible Reading say, “But when the right time came, God sent his Son, who was born from a woman and lived under the law. God did this so that he could buy the freedom of those who were under the law. God’s purpose was to make us his children.”
At just the right time, God sent Jesus to earth to be our Redeemer. What is a redeemer? A redeemer is a person who buys back something that already belongs to him.
God created people to belong to Him. But then sin came into the world. That sin separated people from God. God wanted to be close to people again, so He sent His Son, Jesus, to buy people back — to redeem them.
Jesus came to redeem people — that includes you and me! God wants us to be close to Him and be part of His family.
Take time this Christmas season to remember what Jesus has done for you. Then thank God for Jesus, your Redeemer!
