For God to come to you with the Peace and Joy of Christmas,
he had to spend Christmas alone without his Son.
When the Son of God was growing in the virgin womb of Mary, he was really there – in flesh, by the overshadowing, the equipping of the Holy Spirit. The Son of God was in Bethlehem, not heaven. He was in an animal stable, not with his Father in heaven.
What kind of great love is this that the Father would spend Christmas alone, without his Son, so that you, by faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, could know true joy and peace forever?
Enjoy the song by Sovereign Grace Ministries – we love singing this in worship each year the first Sunday after Christmas.
