Matthew 1:21-23 “She will bear a Son; and you shall call his name Jesus, for it is he who will save his people from their sins. Now all this took place that what was spoken by the lord through the prophet might be fulfilled: saying, ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel.’ Which, translated, means ‘God with us.’”
The powerful truth of Christmas is in who Jesus was and is. He is the one who can save us from our sins and the eternal consequences of those sins.
Here’s a great Christmas message about that called The Power of Christmas Truth by Pastor John MacArthur.
