I tend to think that the main or most important reason that Jesus was born was so that He could die in our place as a sacrifice for our sins. So Jesus was born so that He could die so we don't have to spend eternity in hell. BUT....I also think that ALONG WITH salvation, Jesus gives us some of those other things....BUT, I also think that we could get those other things WITHOUT Jesus being born. But without Jesus being born (and then dying), we had no way to get to heaven.
Just my two cents :-)
