I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and to remind each and every one of us the real reason for this season.
So many make Christmas about a day off work or about getting together with friends and family, giving and receiving gifts, sitting around eating turkey and all the fixings. None of these things are bad or wrong. But Christmas is so much more than all of these things.
Christmas is really about celebrating, acknowledging the birth of the Savior of the world, that God came to us as a little baby, grew up, and sacrificed Himself for every one of us. It’s really about God and the Lord Jesus. Without Jesus coming, none of us would be able to have a relationship with God — the God of the Bible, not a fictional god that someone has made up. There are so many fake religions in this world, but there is only one that is right and real.
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6 KJV). That’s who He is — all man, all God, God with us. So, as we come to December 25, let it be about celebrating Jesus and what He did for all of us. He was willing to lay down His glory and come down to earth to save anyone who chooses to believe in Him.
Let’s really celebrate His birth, life, death, and resurrection. Let your family know, let your children know that the real reason for Christmas is Jesus and what He did for us.
Just a thought & Merry Christmas,
