Why do we celebrate the Birth of Jesus? The bible tells us that divinity took the form of humanity in the process of redemption. Jesus who was God became man (John 1:14). He became poor that we might become rich as captured in 2 Cor. 8:9. Again we read in Isaiah. 53:4 that Jesus took up our infirmities and bore our diseases, He came in human form to redeem us (Luke. 1:68).
God lifts the darkness of our lives (Isaiah 9: 2-7). He is the light of the world as a result, we do not walk in darkness any longer and we as Christians have been given direction.
This light will bring joy to all the world. God took the opportunity to make somebodies out of nobodies. He was revealed to the most insignificant people the shepherds. He was born through a non –entity, a virgin named Mary. Due to these facts, impossibilities became possible and his birth is a fulfilment of God’s promises
As we celebrate this day, may the Lord visit us with miracles, signs and wonders in the name of Jesus. Amen
