Andy Stanley — God Did
The Christmas story began in Genesis with God’s promise that through one man the entire world would be blessed. Apparently, the world needed blessing. But it wasn’t only the world that needed Christmas. God needed it too.
The world needed Christmas. So God staged a demonstration and documented it so the world would know. He did it because we needed to see it to believe it. God had to be with us so we could know he was for us.
