During Christmas, we work hard to make sure that we spend time with family. Whether it’s our immediate family, extended, or both, we long to celebrate this holiday together. We could get together anytime, but why on Christmas? Jesus entered creation so that we might be a part of God’s family, so that we might belong to Him and be able to spend eternity in His presence. He came down to bring us up. This was Jesus’ reason for coming, so that we might become God’s adopted sons and daughters, so we could be a part of His family, His body, His church.
