The REAL Reason for This Season
Christmas can be so much fun! Decorations delight the senses, family and friends gather and children anticipate receiving their favorite toys. For others, not so much. The holidays can be stressful as they worry over what to give or end up in debt, buying gifts they cannot afford. Others become depressed, missing loved ones who have died, broken relationships or, because they are alone.
Whatever our situation may be, we can ignore the holiday hype and the temptation to feel stressed or depressed. Instead, let’s remember what this season is really all about: the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! The word Savior means deliverer and preserver, and that is exactly what Jesus does. He delivers us from sin, addictions, sadness and hard circumstances. He preserves us, keeps us safe, through all kinds of challenges. He even delivers us from death! Those who believe in God and His Son, Jesus Christ will pass from this world into everlasting life! John 3:16 assures us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in Him should not perish but (instead) have everlasting life.”
Whether we decorate a tree, serve in the community or rest at home we can all rejoice in the real reason for this season: the birth of our Savior, and just as the angels declared, so can we: “For unto you is born a Savior, Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-12).
