Christmas is the time for recollections â€“ remembering the beautiful times we had with our loved ones, remembering some funny incidents that happened on Christmas Eve and so on. More than all, itâ€™s the time we remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
It would have been a very different scenario (a horrible scenario, plainly speaking) if Jesus had not shown up on the scene. For years prophets prophesied about the Messiahâ€™s birth. And He came â€“ at the right time.
As pictured in the Scriptures, Christâ€™s birth was awesome. Talk about angels appearing, heavenly choir, supernatural star, top officials from far off countries coming just to worship the â€˜baby Kingâ€™ â€“ it was just extraordinarily awesome!
And He changed the course of world history like no one else! He ushered in a new world into our world. Suddenly there was healing, miracles, wonders, supernatural provision, even the dead being raised to life. And on the cross, He opened the inimitably grand way to heaven and life without limits. And His resurrection literally tore off the old, dead principles of religion.
Thatâ€™s the reason for this magnificent celebration of the season! So as you celebrate Christmas â€“ may be with your family, friends or alone â€“ know that this Jesus is for you! As He came to the earth for you, He forever loves you. He loves to see you live a life of fulfillment and victory.
We pray that you will experience Christâ€™s love and care in a special way during this Christmas. Happy Christmas!
Jesus is the reason for the season.
