During the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it's easy to forget why we celebrate in the first place--JESUS! Christmas is the season, but Jesus is the REASON. It is CHRISTmas for a reason!
What is Christmas you ask? One big birthday party! It amazes me how the birth of one peasant boy born 2000+ years ago would have this big of an impact on us all. His birth was the most wonderful birth in all of history! It's the day God became man-- and THAT is why we celebrate!
The angels said it was GOOD NEWS of GREAT JOY-- which is great to hear when the news is filled with shootings and murder.... Jesus being born is cause for CELEBRATION, not just because of the birth of a baby, but the birth of a SAVIOUR.
Isn't that reason to CELEBRATE? On Christmas, the GREATEST gift ever was given: a SAVIOUR. God's gift to us was His Son. It's a gift that lasts forever. It's a gift that all can have. And it's a gift that God gave us freely. That is why we celebrate. So, this year, try to focus less on your presents and material gifts to others, but focus on the greatest gift of all.... JESUS.
This Christmas season focus on the one who SAVES. The gift that keeps on giving, for all of eternity. Pass on your passion for Him, and give His gift to everyone you know by spreading His message. Pass it on-- JESUS SAVES.
