When we pause to think about the true meaning of Christmas, there are probably several things that go through our minds. Christmas is love. Christmas is friends and family as well as the birth of Christ, but what does it all mean? What was the purpose of the birth of Christ? The Bible tells us that mankind was in need of a savior because sin had entered this world through the actions of Adam and Eve. The only one who met the qualifications of the necessary sacrifice was Christ. He came into this world to save us and provide us with the opportunity to spend eternity in His presence.
