The Christmas season is drawing near. Children are super excited about the presents, some people are excited about spending time with family- I know I am particularly excited about the food. However I am reminded that as Christians, Christmas has a bigger meaning than just eating nice food, getting great presents and hanging out with our beloved family. Christmas is the time where Christians celebrate the birth of the Jesus the promised Messiah (the promised deliverer).
“‘She will give birth to a Son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.’ All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet.”
This Christmas, amongst all the joy and merriment take some time to think about Jesus the reason for the season, the promised one who would save us. Enjoy this beautiful time with family and friends, but don’t forget the author of joy, the maker of life and love- JESUS!
