Christmas is Here

Christmas is here!  The meaning of Christmas for the world is different from that of Christians.  To the world Christmas is about celebration of a year end holiday and also the exchange of gifts.  To a certain extent Christians all over the world have also been drawn into this thinking.  Celebration is not wrong by itself but as Christians we have to really think of the importance of Christmas.  It is really about worldly celebration and gifts?  When we step away and think for a while, we realized the importance and gravity of Christmas - The Birth of Jesus Christ Our Savior.  Yes, He is the Savior of this world whether you like it or not.  God's timing is perfect too.  Galatians 4:4 "When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His son".  Not early nor late, just the right time!  He demonstrated His own love for us that even though we are sinners He died for us Roman 5:8  "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."  It is such a wonderful and unmerited love that God has demonstrated to His children.  We do not deserve His salvation, yet Jesus came to redeem us from our sins and gave eternal life to believers.

Let be conscious of the importance of Christmas, and not celebrate it like the world does, but celebrate with a sense of awe and love for Jesus for He first love us.

A Blessed Christmas to everyone!
