Well, it’s officially here…the Christmas Season. We’ve ll the turkey is gone, the leaves are off the trees, the air is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter as we inch our way closer to HIS BIRTHDAY.
You could hardly tell as you walk through the malls that everything we see; all the lights, the decorated trees, the hustle and bustle of shoppers are all due to one individual being born some 2,000 years ago in a small stable.
Some folks miss the point of Christmas. Oh, decorations are displayed. Parties are attended. Gifts are bought and exchanged. But somehow it never dawns on them that it is someone’s birthday. And that someone is Jesus Christ.
How about you? Have you missed Christmas because you’ve missed Jesus Christ? He is God’s gift to you. Jesus Christ the Savior came to forgive us and cleanse us of all our sin. Have you acknowledged your sin and confessed Him as your Lord and Savior? And if you know whose birthday it is, what gift do you have for Him this Christmas? Does the One who has everything have your heart? Why not give Him that?
“She shall bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus,
for it is He who will save His people from their sins.”
