What is Christmas all about?
I’ve heard people say, “Oh, I dread the Christmas season. So much work, so much stress. I’m always glad when it’s over.”
Is Christmas merely a stressful experience for you?
Is it about spending money, shopping, traveling, eating, cooking?
CHRISTmas is when we celebrate the greatest Gift that mankind was ever given.
CHRISTmas is about Jesus Christ~ GOD in the flesh, Immanuel! The One who humbled Himself and became a man to save us all. Here’s a brief quote from a brilliant writer, who captures the true essence of what CHRISTmas is all about:
“And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans~and all that lives and moves upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused~and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.”
Yes, these words describe what CHRISTmas is really all about!
So please, drag up a chair and join me! I’ll be sharing some thoughts on the holiday season over the next days! In the meantime, celebrate with me! May you know Him, and may YOUR days be merry and bright………
