The world's greatest apologist is worthless—worthless, if they fail to defend Jesus Christ on a cross for our sin. Apologetics is a defense of our faith. Our faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and all it means. He was born to die. The shadow of the Cross was over all of His redemptive work.
Emmanuel, meaning God with us, is the incarnation of the second person of the Trinity. This remembrance of the birth of Christ is most commonly known as Christmas. Apart from all the commercial aspects, to those of us who genuinely know and love Jesus as our Savior, and live our lives to honor Him as our Lord, this truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
May this Christmas season be more holy, be more precious to you, and more meaningful than ever before.
May Christ warm your heart and soul in a very special way, by turning your thoughts to the real meaning of this Christmas season, and in doing so move you one step closer to Him.
