With its culmination on Christmas Eve, "The 4 Words of Christmas" concludes with what is the most important word. The Redemptive Word that Jesus Christ was born to save His people from their sins. Pastor Steve DeWitt discusses the details of verse 21 of Matthew 1 and what that means for you and for me.


21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel"(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. Matthew 1:21 — Matthew 1:25 ESV
