A Few Thoughts on Christmas

"The Son of God became a man to enable men to become the sons of God."
   -- C.S. Lewis:
"That's the good news of Christmas: God has done it all. 
  The only thing left to you and me is to believe."
   -- Ray Pritchard
"The coming of Christ by way of a Bethlehem manger seems strange and
stunning. But when we take Him out of the manger and invite Him into
our hearts, then the meaning unfolds and the strangeness vanishes."
  -- C. Neil Strait
Purposes of the Incarnation:
* To bear witness to the truth (Jn 18:37),
* To bring light to the darkness (Jn 12:46),
* To bring abundant life (Jn 10:10).
