God created life before it existed. He carved the mountains into majestic peaks – He filled the seas with living things – He looked at the heavens and placed the stars and planet. Each tree was planted perfectly by Him and every seed that would produce more life was in His hand. His breath was inhaled by the animals as they came into being. Then He took a handful of dust and molded the first human being – giving him masterful workmanship – a mind that could be used to name all the creatures under him and a body that was invincible. He then crafted a woman to be a companion for the man. Together they would be fruitful and inhabit the earth. and then they disobeyed Him.
A story as old as time itself. Sin entered God’s perfect creation by one simple act – disobedience. Sin came into the world and would be passed from generation to generation.
From the very beginning of the world, God was in control. He continues to watch over His creation and loves it so much that He provided a way out for the consequences of sin. He came to earth as a little, helpless child in a most miraculous way – born of a woman, conceived by God. That baby would become the champion, the savior, the prince of peace, bringing eternal life to all those who would ask for it.
Who is this child? He is God Himself. What a treasure lay in that lowly feeding trough. Within 33 years He would become the perfect sacrifice for sin and the promise of salvation fulfilled.
