“The incarnation of God in the person of Jesus Christ is a history-altering, life-transforming, paradigm-shattering event.” Tim Keller

“The Christmas story: The new born baby comes to keep what people have broken and to bear the penalty that should fall on them.”

“The Christmas story: Diseased hearts. Divine Grace. Willing Son. Acceptable Sacrifice. Eternal hope.”

“The Christmas story: Grace comes to earth. Grace lives righteously. Grace hangs on a cross. Grace rises again. Grace freely flows.”

“The Christmas story: The King who lies in a manger has come to do what is needed, but unthinkable; bear our guilt and carry our shame.”

“The Christmas story: The glory of God’s grace meets the tragedy of sin in the redeeming work of the Word in the flesh, the Messiah Jesus.”

“The Christmas story: Sin has a penalty, redemption has a price , the baby in the manger came to settle the account so we’d be forgiven.”

Paul David Tripp
