But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all people.” - Luke 2:10
The good news is that Jesus the Savior was born. This Wednesday, the whole world will pause for the greatest moment in mankind’s history: the moment when God so loved the world that He gave His Son so that people everywhere might be saved (John 3:16). We recognize this moment on Christmas, the day we recognize His birth. Because of that, we can experience forgiveness from our sins (those things we do that are against the Word of God). Anyone can repent and be forgiven if they ask and believe that Jesus is the Son of God and confess Him as Lord of their life (Romans 10:9-10). This is the one and only reason we celebrate Christmas.
Merry Christmas - those words have come under attack recently as being offensive and are often classified as hate speech. To those of us who have been forgiven and saved, we celebrate unashamedly the Christ in Christmas. So, to you and your family, MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY CHRISTMAS, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Just a thought,
