Wonder of His Birth

Galatians 4:4-5

As the day draws closer when we celebrate the birth of the Savior, our minds turn to thoughts of that glorious time when God became a man. We generally turn to the gospel accounts to find the Christmas message, and yet it is found throughout the Scriptures. This morning we want to consider two verses from Paul's epistle to the Galatians which captures the wonder and presents the message of Christmas giving us when, how, and why.

I. When: "...the fullness of time..."

II. How: "...God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law..."

III. Why: "...to redeem...that we might receive the adoption of sons..."

Conclusion: Read: Galatians 4:4-5. Now we can understand when Christ was born, how God brought this to pass, and why He became a man!

Have you been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ? Do you know the blessedness of the sonship? Why not come today and find the true fulfillment of Christmas? If you reject Christ this morning, you are rejecting all that Christmas is about!

Christians, will you honor Christ ths Christmas? Remember that He was born of a virgin, that He came to redeem us that we might become the sons of God, and that it was all in accordance with God's timing.
