Christmas is wonder, power, joy, beauty . . . and a one very big reminder about the nature of God.
"And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.” 2 Samuel 7:16 ESV
God's word is being fulfilled even when it looks like it has failed.
If there is one thing Christmas teaches me, it is that God keeps his promises. A prophecy is a promise, a God-given guarantee. And the Bible is filled with prophecies about the coming Messiah.
