Now that might sound like an odd question but to millions of people, Christmas is just another holiday to party! This ought not to be!
As we approach Christmas day, looking forward to all the festivities, there will be millions of people celebrating Christmas without one mention of the One Who is the Reason for the celebration –our Lord Jesus! How sad that so many will celebrate Christmas and miss the whole point of why we’re celebrating!
II Cor. 9:15 tells us that Jesus is God’s unspeakable Gift to us. The Amplified calls Jesus God’s indescribable, inexpressible free Gift to us. Words are not adequate to describe all that Jesus is. John15:5 says that without Him we can do nothing but with Him we can do all things [Phil. 4:13].
Not only that, Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law – sin, sickness, poverty, and spiritual death. Who wouldn’t want to serve a Lord who is constantly looking out for us and has paved the way for us to live victoriously on planet earth and afterwards to rejoice with Him forevermore!
We truly have so much to celebrate that we should have Christmas every day. I think many people don’t really know what their salvation means and that’s why they don’t make a big deal about it at Christmas time. That needs to change!
We need to instill God’s Word and ways into our children now because they’re our future generation and legacy!
Get out your Bible on Christmas day and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with your loved ones and have a blessed celebration!
Jesus is the TRUE reason for the season!
