“The divine babe of the manger is the one who would die on a cross, and was raised on the third day. Christmas is inseparable from Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.”
- Dr. Al Mohler
During the time of year that is purportedly set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I find it quite interesting that very often it is nothing of the sort. There is a commercialism that has shrouded the intent of the holiday that highlights materialism and gluttony as opposed to the Advent of Christ into the earth realm. Even beyond the gross commercialism, however, there is a general skewed focus that emphasizes a visual construct of a baby in a manger with very little consideration for what His entrance into our existence really meant.
