“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” John 1:12-13
The reason Jesus came wasn’t for His own benefit but for ours. Every person is born in sin and is spiritually dead; there is nothing that you or I can do about it. We need to be redeemed and reborn.
This is what Christmas offers to those who see their need and put their trust in Christ — forgiveness, rebirth, and the promise of eternal life.
