So, This Is Christmas!!

So, now we are in full holiday mode.  We celebrate one and then move on to the next.  But the holiday we celebrate in late December should be more than what the television and news media tell us it is.

As we get all engrossed in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you know, shopping, wrapping gifts, sending cards, decorating inside the house and out, attending parties, and of course putting up the tree, we sometimes forget the real meaning of Christmas.  Sometimes we forget what happened that cold night in Bethlehem, when angels told shepherds “Fear not for unto you this day a Savior is born”.  Luke 2:10-11.  This fulfilled the prophecy of our Messiah’s birth.  God did not tell us the exact time, day or year of His birth, but we know what happened and where.

Christmas is really all about love, God’s love, “for God is love”, 1 John 4:8.  It is the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

I wish each and every one of you a wonderful and memorable Christmas.  Enjoy all the events and decorations, the food and gifts, the music and celebrations.  Just remember the true reason for this wonderful season is the birth of our Jesus, the Messiah, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, God’s gift of Joy to the world. 

In truth and Love,

 

Dennis
