Christmas is About Jesus

I love the Holiday Season with all its glit and glamor. Everywhere are sounds of
Christmas carols playing in malls and restaurants as people hustle and bustle to buy
gifts for whomever. I already know the gifts that I am going to get for people
except for our eight-year-old granddaughter and her thirteen-year-old brother.
These two know immediately what they want. I am sure their minds have been
marinating on what their gifts are going to be as the holiday season is approaching.

Sometimes we can be in such a frenzy until the real meaning is forgotten. Without
the birth of Christ there would be no reason for the Christmas season. This is the
time we celebrate our Savior’s birth. Jesus came into the world, not with a baby
shower or in a fancy house; He was laid in an animal trough. And He exited from
the world thirty-three and one half years later, our Savior hung on the cross for the
sins of the world.

“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His
only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies
on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal
(everlasting) life. For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to
reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find
salvation and be made safe and sound through Him” (John 3:16-17AMP).

Let’s pray: Heavenly Father, we are so thankful for this time of year, to spend time
with family and friends. Let us first be most thankful for the greatest gift of all,
Jesus, our Savior. Because of His sacrifice we have eternal life. In Jesus’ name,
