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.”
