The Nativity is a gift of Redemption.
But few theologians give this a mention.
Christ was born in human form to bring a dark world light.
It was a magical mysterious night.
God had entered in human affairs.
Satan laughed and said, “No one really cares”.
But the fact was God really cared and had to act.
God knew that Light and Love would have its full impact.
He loved his children as any parent would.
He alone knew man and in a small way, man understood.
The heavenly realm watched this divine drama unfold.
The Gift of Redemption could now be told.
God’s divine plan was now set in place.
Redemption is now freely available to the whole human race.
When we think of Nativity, let us think of God’s plan of redemption.
Dwell on the Nativity scene; Redemption is worth a mention.
