If there had been no virgin birth, there certainly would had been no resurrection. The virgin birth is the platform for everything we believe. If Jesus would have been born not of a virgin, then we have no Saviour. The birth in a manger, wise men, gifts and the star; not just a story but actual events that took place the night of Jesus' birth. The devil is a great imitator. The devil has put forth this philosophy of Christmas that deals with Santa Clause and elves, all kinds of gadgets and entertainment during this time, clouding the situation till our children think the birth is also "just another story". Christmas is all about the cross and all about the Christ.
Jesus came to this earth with the sole purpose to die for our sins. If Christ had not been born the element that gives meaning to life would be missing . Without Him where would any of us find joy, peace or love? Our faith would be in vain and death would be the conquerer. All hope would be swallowed up in the grave. BUT HE DID COME! Today, we celebrate His birth and anticipate His coming again.
"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost." Matthew 1:18
