Isaiah 59:15-17 says “God looked and saw evil looming on the horizon-

so much evil and no sign of Justice.

He couldn’t believe what he saw:

not a soul around to correct this awful situation.

So he did it himself, took on the work of Salvation,

fueled by his own Righteousness.

He dressed in Righteousness, put it on like a suit of armor,

with Salvation on his head like a helmet,

Put on Judgment like an overcoat,

and threw a cloak of Passion across his shoulders.”

This is why we celebrate Christmas. Yes, God sees the sin in this world, but He Himself created the plan of salvation to restore our relationship with Him. At Christmas, we celebrate the fact that Jesus submitted Himself to His Father’s plan. Thank You, Jesus!
