A Lamb in a Manger

Paul said, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (1 Tim. 1:15). The incarnation is really about the redemption.

Far too many Christmas songs and celebrations focus on a baby in a manger. But, as amazing as His birth was, it was never the goal. He came to lay down His life for sinners.

Paul Tripp wrote, “You don’t understand the Christmas story unless you look into that manger and see a Lamb.”

Thanks for the reminder. This past season I attempted to focus on that truth with a group of a kids from Rosebud Indian Reservation. If anyone reading this post is interested in ideas for how to impart this truth to young ones, I invite you to read my post I would love to help you bring children to meet the Lamb in the manger.
