No small baby in the manger!

For many, Christmas is the time to think of Jesus Christ as a baby in a manger. The humble birth of Jesus Christ was never intended to conceal the reality that God was being born into the world.

The central truth of the Christmas story is this: the Child of Christmas is God. I don’t suppose anyone can ever fathom what it means for God to be born in a manger.

  • He is not just an outline of God; He is fully God.
  • Jesus, on the other hand, is God’s exact image.
  • He is the exact image of God.

God in a Manger – Christmas is not about the Saviour’s infancy; it is about His deity. While the birth of Christ is a special and miraculous event, it isn’t the primary focus.

In the Bible, Hebrews 1 parallels Colossians 1:15-20 however modern world’s version of Christmas does just that. And consequently for the greater part of humanity, Christmas has no legitimate meaning at all.

Also in Colossians 1:15-20 says, He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation.
