Jesus is introduced as
1) Son of Abraham - the Promise of Universal Blessing (Genesis 12:1-3)
2) Son of David (also Messiah/Christ) - the Promise of Eternal Kingdom/King (Isaiah 11:1-11)
3) Jesus means "God saves."
Matthew is packing all these elements of meaning in the person of Jesus

You Are Special
Christmas is a season to give gifts. Have you done Christmas shopping for this year? For whom will you spend the largest amount? We want to give something special for someone special.
Christmas is the time to remember that God, who created heaven and earth and is still in control of everything in there, gave us a gift. What kind of present is it?
"God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
God gave us his most precious thing to each of us. There is no partiality here. But God will never force you to receive it. It's up to you. You can receive this gift or reject it. If you receive God's special gift, Jesus, you will start to experience how special you are to God.
