Letter to the Editor


The importance
of this season
I was contemplating on certain
Biblical subjects recently and I
thought in depth on the birth of
Christ.
The world received the most
precious gift to mankind and it
came wrapped in swaddling
clothes. He wasn't born in a
king's palace, but in a stable. He
had no nice baby bed, but was
laid in a manger. Yet, wonder of
wonders, he was the creator of
the universe -= God come to
earth in the flesh to die on an old
rugged cross!
I thought of how that if Adam


and Eve hadn't sinned in the Gar-
den of Eden, there would have
been no need for a savior -
therefore, no need for Jesus to
have been'born. Only sinners
need saving, right?
Adam and Eve were born (cre-
ated) into a perfect world and
they were originally "perfect"
people as God intended his
creation to be.
But God, the father, knew from
the beginning that the humans he
made would "mess up" big time!
Therefore, he had in his infinite
wisdom and master plan a way to
redeem us back to him. He knew
that "the word" would become
flesh and be our sacrifice. Not
another man or person of a god-

head would be born as our savior,
but the word!
Even from the time of Adam
through Cain and Abel, Satan has
tried to kill off the lineage of Christ
to prevent his birth. Why? So that
mankind would be forever lost!
He did not start attempting to
kill Jesus Christ just from the time
of his birth and Herod, but since
the foundation of the world! But,
as the song by Kevin Spencer says
"the blood is still there." We are
safe from Satan and the world as
long as we have the blood applied
to us. We are washed in it.
Thank God for this upcoming
holiday season. He is truly the rea-
son for the season.
We are not told in scripture to


remember his birth only his
death, in communion and the
Lord's Supper. But, I believe it is a
good thing to honor his birth, not
necessarily as the pagan world
does, in overspending and over
indulgence of food and drink, but
in our hearts.
Just suppose God had
searched over heaven and could-
n't find one who was willing to be
the supreme sacrifice who was
needed to buy eternal life for you
and me.
Thank God for Jesus Christ
who, in truth, was God in flesh.
Emanuel, being interpreted is
"God with us."
