“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 NIV
Now, more than ever, we need to proclaim what Christmas is all about. It’s not about Santa, it’s not about trees, it’s not about new cars or diamonds, or toys of any kind. Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus. His birth is special, because it’s evidence of God’s profound love for you. God became a human in the person of Jesus so He could live a perfect life, then offer that life on the cross to pay for all sin. His name is Jesus, “because he will save his people from their sins.” Christmas is a big deal. It is a celebration God’s plan of salvation put in motion. You can give gifts, you can have egg nog if that’s your thing, but do NOT forget to remind those with whom you celebrate that Christmas is about God becoming human because of His intense love for His people.
You are loved! Celebrate that love this Christmas! Christ is born!
