Everyone looks forward to getting gifts at Christmas.  Some are big, some are small, some are cool…. and some are… well, not.  But whatever the gift, we should always remember that Jesus (not gifts, not Santa) is the reason for this season of Christmas.  “For unto you is born this day  in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”  Luke 2:11-12

The baby, who was born in the manger and who grew to be sacrificed for our sins, is God, made into a man who lived among us.

Based on Luke 2:1-7
