Paul on the importance of the birth of Christ

On this 7th day of Christmas let’s glance at Paul’s wonderful tome to the letter to the churches in Galatia. It is his first letter and quite early as letters go (only James precedes it). In it is the clear explanation of the gospel to people who had become confused. In it he talks about and gives glory to the plan of God! Note the phrase “the fullness of time”.

“But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.” (Galatians‬ ‭4:4-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Now THAT is Christmas!
