Advent Day 7 - Jesus

God sent his Son to provide rescue and forgiveness for those who had ignored his existence and rebelled against his rule.  That's grace!

For further study:  Hebrews 1:1 - 4

For parents and children:  Talk to your children about how you get out tools whenever something is broken.  Then help them to understand that God knew that the only way to fix all the things sin had broken was not with a tool, but with a person.  That's why God sent His Son, Jesus, to earth to be born in that manger in Bethlehem.

"God's response to our rebellion was to give us himself."

"You simply cannot use the word grace without connecting that word to Jesus."

"This season, in the midst of all the celebrations and gift-giving, be careful to remember that at the center of what we celebrate is one game-changing, life-altering, hope-giving reality: grace is a person and his name is Jesus."

"Jesus is God's redeeming grace, given to those who without him would have no hope in life or in death.  Now that's worth celebrating, not just on one special day but on every day of your life, and for the rest of eternity too!

For the month of December, there will be daily posts based on Paul Tripp's Advent book Come Let Us Adore Him.
