For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. Matthew 18:11, NKJV

After thousands of years of prophecy, He who is the Son of God became the Son of man, born of a virgin in Judah. What kindness is this! Man lost everything in Adam, the first man, so God’s salvation could only become a reality through the Second Man, the last Adam. “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is,  the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14-15, NKJV). —Neil Dougal

Jesus, my Saviour, to Bethlehem came, Born in a manger to sorrow and
shame; O it is wonderful blest be His Name, seeking for me, for me.
