What was the world like 2000 years ago? What was different the day before Christ was born? What difference did His birth make? Those might be some questions to think through with your kids today.
Romans 5:6 – 10 outlines our condition before Christ. We had no way to be reconciled to God. There was no bridge, no way back. We were lost without a compass or map. The newborn cry of a baby in a manger in Bethlehem would radically change all of that. Now, instead of groping around for a way to reach God; God had invaded, He had taken on flesh and come for us. He initiated a personal relationship. He changed the entire dynamic rendering religion useless; replacing rote with relationship.
Praise Him for this invasion with your tribe today. Merry Christmas from our home to your’s.
