Christmas Baby

The Jewish people waited for the Messiah (God’s Son) to come to earth. From the time that Adam and Eve sinned, God planned to send His only Son to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Many verses from the Old Testament talk about Jesus being born. Jewish people looked forward to the time when God would send His Son to earth. The shepherds did not seem surprised to learn that God’s Son had been born (Luke 2:11). The wise men studied the stars and expected the King of the Jews to be born (Matthew 2:1-2).
When it was time for Jesus to be born, Mary and Joseph were in Bethlehem. Mary gave birth to her baby and laid Him in an animal feeding box. Joseph and Mary obeyed God and named the baby Jesus.
The world waited a long time for God’s Son. Now the waiting was over. Jesus was born to grow up and die for you and me. Worship Him this Christmas season.
