You have probably seen many nativity scenes during this Christmas season, but have you ever stopped to wonder why Jesus was born in a stable, of all places?
The one who would be called the "Prince of Peace, the Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father", was not born in a palace or in a castle, as fitting for a King. No, he was born in a very

The answer is simple and astounding at the same time. Jesus came to us as a helpless child born to humble parents, so that he can draw us near to God. He came to get to know us better, to understand our suffering, to feel our pain, to share in the human experience, so that we can know a God who is just like us.

But Jesus lived as one of us, he was tempted as one of us, he was ridiculed, betrayed, misunderstood, falsely accused, persecuted, abandoned, beaten and tortured. If you every need a Savior who has experienced every kind of suffering imaginable, you know whom to turn to. This Christmas, let's celebrate the birth of our Savior, who loved us so much that he came to us as humbly as possible.

prophet who taught us much about how to live better lives. But Jesus was much more than a prophet. His mission and destiny was to save us by being crucified for our sins. He
has given us countless gifts through His death and resurrection, and here are just a few of them:
