Luke 2

Read Luke 2.

Do you know the story of your birth? I was born at a normal hospital after trying to make my first appearance at my brother’s third birthday party. What can I say? Mr. Gatti’s was an exciting place back in the mid-nineties. Maybe your story is good or bad or maybe you don’t know it, but all of our entrances into this world can be summarized like this: a baby was born.

In Luke 2, we see an account of the birth of Jesus. In one way, we can view it as normal. A baby was born. Our God came to the earth as a fully human baby. In another way, Luke 2 is an account of the greatest birth of all time. Our God came to earth as a fully human baby. Christ came into this world the same way as everyone else, but it was so He could fulfill God’s ultimate plan of redemption. He came to live a perfect life and to save us by taking the punishment for our sin.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:11, ESV
