Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others. He has been sent as a sign from God, but many will oppose him. As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.”
– Luke 2:34-35
Jesus Christ came into this world to shake things up. He came to show us what being a humble servant looks like and what true, unconditional love really is. God tried setting laws and examples, but humankind was just to self involved to understand His ways. Because he loved us, He sent his son. His law convicts us, His son saves us. The message is simple.
