I just want to wish everyone a very, Merry Christmas!
I want to thank anyone who stops by to read this, even though y’all should be with your families (I scheduled this post, so I win). I’m blessed to have regular readers and even to just be able to write on this blog. I enjoy it and honestly, I’d continue it even if no one read it.
But still, I’m glad you do.
And of course we can’t forget the reason we celebrate Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ.
“Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!” – Luke 2:9-11
God gave us the gift of salvation by giving His son on that holy night over 2000 years ago, who would live a perfect life, die for our sins, and raise from the dead. So while people are giving each other gifts, let’s remember who actually started that tradition. And it shouldn’t be that we feel we have to give each other gifts, we should want to out of love because that’s how God gave us this gift… out of His unfailing love for us.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
Once again, Merry Christmas everyone!
