Sometimes it can be hard to see how Christmas fits into the big picture of the Bible. Alistair Begg reminds us, however, that Christmas isn’t just about satisfying demands for charity; it’s about accepting an amazing offer of salvation. By God’s perfect providence, Jesus took on humanity at the right time so that He might be our substitute. As helpless sinners in need of a Savior, we can turn to Christ for the free promise of salvation that was made to Abraham in ages past.
4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
