The Purpose of Christmas…

I had this thought a few years ago and it has stuck with me, I’d like to share it with you now. We hear all this stuff around the holidays about keeping Christ in Christmas (really that should be keep Christ in all day every day and if we did that, Christmas would take care of itself, but I digress.) and remembering the reason for the season, well here it is and this might surprise you at first.

The purpose of Christmas is Good Friday, and the purpose of Good Friday is Easter.

Jesus came to be our sacrifice, Good Friday was the culmination of His earthly mission, that’s why His last words on the cross were “It is Finished.” Just like He said, no one took His life, He laid it down willingly from there the Father finished the mission and raised Him from the dead. Because of this eternity is for all who believe.

Check out this video from David Rodriquez painting live at The Potter’s House that really sums it up.
