5 Miracles of Christmas: It is About Victory

by David Chadwick Christmas. Said by many to be the most wonderful time of the year. As followers of Jesus, we know it’s even more wonderful than most know. It’s a rescue mission full of good news and miracles. Christmas is about the presence of God. Today, we learn it’s also about the victory we have through Jesus. Victory is defined as “an act of defeating an enemy or opponent in a battle, game, or other competition.” Everyone knows that it is far more fun to win than to lose. Victory is always a better outcome than losing. As we talk about the impact of the victory that comes with the Gospel of Jesus, always connect the cradle with the cross, remembering that the final chapter of the story of the cross is the empty tomb! That baby who grew up and perfectly obeyed all the righteous requirements of the law is the same one who took our place and our punishment on the cross. But on the third day, he rose from the dead. He has VICTORY over sin, death, and the devil. The miracle of all miracles! The Jesus who lives in us always gives us the victory (1 Corinthians 15:57). Thanks be to God who always gives us triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14). If you believe this, you should have HOPE. Now and forever. The story begins with the incarnation. But it ends with the resurrection and the victory. A miraculous story from beginning to end. This is the true meaning of Christmas!
