    Since Christmas is about Christ, let us consider who he is, what he did and what we owe him. First, Jesus was God come in the flesh (John 1:14). He was human and divine. The Apostle John says, “In the beginning was the Word, and Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning” (1:1-2).
