Throughout the Bible, a Saviour was promised. He would be born in Bethlehem, the Son of a virgin, a King to rule according to the lineage of David, ushering in an era of unprecedented peace. So many were watching and waiting, filled with longing and expectation for this promised Deliverer.
And then, on a night, unassuming and normal, Jesus is born. Not as expected, but as promised. Love has come. Love is here. Love is God with us.
