The Real Reason for This Season
Christmas can be so much fun! Decorations delight the senses, family and friends gather together, and children anticipate receiving their favorite toys. For others however, the holidays can be stressful as they worry over what to give or end up deep in debt, buying gifts their budgets cannot support. Some people become depressed, missing loved ones who have passed on, suffering from broken relationships, or because they are alone.
Ignore the holiday hype and the temptation of loneliness. Instead, remember what this season is really all about: the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, born in a manager with angels declaring, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, good will toward men.”(Luke 2:1-20)
Exchanging gifts, visiting friends, volunteering services or spending time alone, we all have the same magnificent reason to celebrate: that Jesus is the reason for this season! God loves us so much He gave us His very own Son, Jesus Christ, so that we all could have everlasting life (John 3:16). This is the reason to celebrate this season, and just as the angels declared, so can we: “For unto you is born a Savior, Christ the Lord.”(Luke 2:10-12).
Jesus Christ, the greatest Gift ever given or received. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!
