Its that time of the year when we buy Christmas trees and lights and take the kids to see Santa. Yes all that is good stuff but really what are we supposed to celebrate this season?
Christmas is a time of the year signifying the birth of our lord Jesus. And what does his birth promise or bring? What do I stand to gain from his birth?
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
Christmas is a season to be reminded of Gods love for us, such that he gave us his son. Its a reminder that because of that love, we have eternal life as long as we believe. He gave his son up so we could be justified, so we are no longer held accountable for our sins. That is the true meaning of Christmas.
This is a season to reflect on your life as a Christian..how much have you contributed to the body of Christ and how much more you have to do. Let your light so shine that men will see your works and glorify your Heavenly Father. Merry Christmas💗🌲🎉
