He was BORN... to DIE.  He chose to come from His throne in heaven and become a man: to be a worthy sacrifice to PAY for the world's sins.  He taught us what sin was so we'd know our critical need for a Saviour and our absolute vulnerable (and impossible) position to help ourselves.  He surrendered Himself, to give us a means of escape from an otherwise certain path to hell, in payment for our sins.

Oh, COME ~ let us ADORE Him!  Let us THANK Him for the salvation that He gives.  Have you received His Gift today?
