Christmas is a very major holiday celebrated by most people on Dec 25. During this times stores have all kind of
items pretaining to christmas on sale such as christmas trees, ornaments, wreaths, stockings, reindeers, and the nativity scene.People go about spending money on these things and buying gifts for family and friends.Many people buy the different items to decorate their yard and put up the tree so when people pass by they can see it beautifully glowing.Who stop and think to themselves and say ” What’s the real meaning of this highly honored season?” Is it about good old Santa Claus? It is about the reindeers? It is just about buying and giving gifts? Is it about the beautifully decorated tree? So what is the purpose for the honored holiday? I believe the reason for this season of love is about JESUS CHRIST. No Jesus wasn’t born on Dec 25, because I haven’t found it in the Bible. Dec 25 was a date set aside as a memorial of Jesus Christ birth. Jesus was the greatest gift God gave to mankind, A Saviour, A Deliver, A Redeemer,etc . For John 3:16 says, ” For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son(JESUS CHRIST) that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.Jesus Christ will give eternal life to all who receives him into their life.Many people sing this song ” Joy to the world”, but who really mediate on the lyrics and think about what is actually being said.
Read John 3:36, John 14:6, Romans 6:23, Romans, 10:9-13
God loves you! Merry CHRIST-mas!
