For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
He could have stayed in heaven, but He chose to humble himself to become a man.
He could have come to be served, but He chose to serve.
He could have used his power on himself, but He chose to reserve that for others.
He could have saved himself, but He chose to lay His life down on a cross as a ransom for all.
In this Christmas season, I pray that we all take time out to reflect on these difficult choices of Christ…and when each of us comes to that ultimate fork in the road, we likewise choose Him.
