Back during World War II a little boy and his father were out for a drive on Christmas Eve. As they drove by houses that were decorated for Christmas the boy noticed that many of the windows had a star. He asked his father, “Daddy, why do some of the people have a star in the window?” His father said that the star meant that the family had a son in the war. As they drove on, suddenly the little boy saw a bright star in the night sky. “Look, Daddy! God must have a son in the war, too! He’s got a star in his window.”
Yes, God has a son who went to war. Jesus came into this world to do battle with sin, and he won the war when he gave his life on the cross and rose on the third day! And everyone who believes in him shares in the victory!
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans 5:8
