The savior Reveal

December 20, 2020

Summary

The true reveal of Christmas is twofold: Jesus is revealed as the world’s true Savior and Lord, and it is also revealed that we can be reborn to live into the purpose and vocation for which God created us. As John puts it, when we receive Christ and believe in his name, we are given “power to become children of God, who were born not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:13). Jesus would tell Nicodemus that becoming a child of God requires being “born from above” and “born of water and the Spirit” (John 3:3, 5).
