Jesus did not arrive as an excuse for a holiday after Thanksgiving or as an excuse for an office party. For that matter, Jesus did not arrive as an excuse to buy yourself that gift or as an excuse to eat frosted cookies, or heaven forbid, fruit cake. Jesus came in obedience and that obedience led to the cross. And let me tell you … the cross was not plan b or a sophisticated troubleshooting effort. See Isaiah 53.
