He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. -Luke 1:32 NIV
The idea that God has a son is such a radical idea. I mean really, God has a son? In ancient times stories abounded about angelic visitations. If I were God maybe I would have sent an angel or possibly anointed a human baby. Yet the scriptures tell us that God so loves us that He did not withhold anything but gave us the one he held most dear. When I think of that baby born in Bethlehem so many years ago I think about how much God loves me.
