What Child Is This?

One of the traditional Christmas songs we sing asks the question, “What Child is this?” The answer to that question makes all the difference in the world as to what Christmas is all about. If that child were just some son of a famous person or just some heir to an earthly kingdom or just some offspring of a world religious leader, there would be no Christmas. The reason we celebrate Christmas is because that child is God in human flesh. That Child is our Savior.

Jesus was born into this sinful world for the very purpose of later dying on the cross to provide salvation for us sinful people. After Jesus was born, the angel announced to some lowly shepherds, “Behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, Who is Christ the Lord” (Lk. 2:10,11).

Christmas is all about the Child Who was born to the Virgin Mary in a stable full of animals in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. Let’s proclaim this wonderful news this Christmas season in all of our celebrations. Let’s make sure everyone we celebrate Christmas with knows that Christmas is all about a Child Who was born to provide our salvation.
