Christmas in today’s society is controversial to some who oppose the truth, that is, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We have failed miserably in the United States of protecting the Holy things that have been instilled into our care, such as the birth of Christ, to pass this knowledge unto the next generations and to make sure that children understand what Christmas is all about.
Let’s talk about what Christmas is not about. It is not about materialism, getting into debt, getting drunk at Christmas parties, commercialism, or anything else that promotes irresponsible behavior, it is about the birth of Christ!!!
During this time of year, people usually do a lot of reflection of their lives and some slip into deep depression, even to the point of suicide. They get lonely, have messed up families, have had bad experiences around this time of year, etc. Maybe they have made some bad choices that have ex-communicated themselves from their families even. Well, Good News!!! We have a Savior and He came and died for our sins on a cross over 2,000 years ago and after being dead three days, He resurrected and lives today. He sits at the right hand of God Almighty, His father in heaven, right now, interceding in our behalf as you read this article. What a thought!!!
This Jesus that I am speaking about wants to have a personal relationship with you and stands at the door of your heart and knocks on it. He will not break down the door, for He is a gentleman, and He will come into your heart and have this relationship with you, if you invite Him in.
Jesus Christ was born into this world in order to live in a real human body to be able to experience all of our temptations, limitations, emotions, physical weaknesses, the whole human experience, so that, He could completely understand all of our needs and desires. He was not born in some fancy place, He chose to be born to a humble poor couple, who did not really possess any real material possessions at all. He lived a sinless life as an example for all of us. His ministry showed that was human, yet was divinely inspired. He died a criminals death, even though He was an innocent man. For you see, He could not have fulfilled the righteous requirements of the law that bind man to eternal judgment, if He did not live a perfect and holy life, but because He did, God the Father blessed humanity with the free gift of Salvation thru Christ, His one and only son. That my friend, is why we celebrate Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season!!!!!!!
Have a very Merry Christmas and may God Bless You and Your loved ones this Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!
