God is love. He has been since time began and He will be forevermore. The Bible says that it pleased the Father that all fullness should dwell in Him. The Godhead, three in one was the epitome of perfect love, perfect unity, and perfect fullness. Still, it was decided that man and woman would be created. The all-knowing God saw creation, the birth of mankind, the fall, the sin, and the rebellion. He saw that the only way to bring those flawed people salvation, was to send a Savior, His only son. He saw His son born to a virgin, the man He would become, the ministry He would lead and finally the road to Cavalry. He watched as His son, a piece to the perfect Trinity, would save an undeserving and unworthy people. Did that stop Him from breathing life as we know it into existence? No, it certainly did not.

2,000 years ago, love came down.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. -Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV). 

As the trees sparkle, food is shared among family and friends, laughter is raised up, gifts are exchanged, let’s enjoy the blessings but not forget what it’s really all about. Jesus. Jesus, the spotless lamb coming down to earth to make the sweetest sacrifice. Our precious Savior who laid down His life knowing that it would ultimately lead to an eternity of us all together with Him. 

We weren't needed. We were chosen and counted worthy. What an incredible gift.
