Yes of course He came to be our Saviour, but don't forget the grand miracle of the Incarnation, without which we could not have been saved. Its not just about the miracle of the Virgin Birth, but about who He was, God in the flesh, God with us. Unless He was God Incarnate we are not saved. So maybe it is worth a word for the Christmas miracle after all!
This article probably says what I have been saying and thinking for many years.
We need to focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus more than His birth,
Without His death for our sins we would not be saved and without His resurrection
we would not be assured of His power over death and sin. While His miraculous birth is to be celebrated,
let's not forget what His birth was to accomplish and the ultimate end reason for the season.

Excellent reminder. Thank you.
Great article! My feelings exactly!
Well-articulated. I believe this is a Catholic thing too, at least in Hispanic culture, all year-round. They call God, Diosito, in the diminutive, instead of Dios, so as to tone down His all-pervading power. Don't want to offend anyone with His awesome presence, now do we?
Crucifixes pose the same problem. Someone needs to take Jesus off the cross, cuz that was a long time ago! He is risen! Preach it!
A great reminder for preachers who are tempted to recycle old sermons this time of year.
Great reminder this time of year. It is not only seasonal amnesia, but seasonal rut as we preachers struggle to creatively use the same Christmas texts each year. Thanks Ryan for fresh suggestions!
