For unto us a child is born.

I
This is significant because it demonstrates that Jesus is fully man. He was born as a child, grew up, and died. He perfectly identifies with everything we will face. He lived it as a human being. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
We can trust someone that has walked in our shoes better than someone that has never experienced what we have. Jesus understands what you have been through, are going through, and will go through. He had pain, heart ache, and difficulties in his life. He also had joy, peace, an happiness.

Romans 3:16 NASB95

Romans 5:8 NASB95
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
God gave us his Son Jesus to take away the punishment for our sin. He paid the price by dying on a Roman cross bearing our sin punishment and was resurrected from the dead.
Romans 10:9–10 NASB95
that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

You and I can be saved only by confessing our sins and placing our faith in God’s son, Jesus Christ who died  and paid for our sins on the cross. We must also surrender our life to His lordship… placing him in charge of every area of our life because we now belong to him.
Confession 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Faith For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [a]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Romans 10:13 NASB95
for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Call on the name of the Lord this morning. Ask him to forgive you and save you. Place your faith and trust in him. Give him your life this morning!
