Why a Christmas Baby?

1. Because God’s Christmas Covenant So Promised
2. To Show His Complete Humanity and Law-Fulfillment
3. To “Embody” His Gospel Love

(Pastor David Schierenbeck)
Sermon Text: Matt 1:20b-21 (NKJV)

20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
