Its that time for the annual Christmas party that my employer hosts every year. I am sure that many of you have attended these type of functions. I look arround in the stores and see the “Christmas” decorations. I want to emphasize the word Christmas because even that very word has become politically incorrect in society. The Christmas cards say things like “Tis the Season” Season for What? I am starting ro wonder how many people actually understand what we are celebrating. “It’s s certainly not trees with lights and a guy called Santa Clause. We are celebrating Jesus’s birthday.
“For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6)
“In the beginning God spoke into the darkness and created the light. This light was the beginning of a new world. Like our world, we all begin in darkness because of our sinful nature. This is why during Christmas we celebrate with such excitement because the Light has come into our darkness. Two thousand years ago in a stable in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ came in the form of man. He, who had created light in the beginning of time, was now on our earth as a light to men.
That is what the CHRISTmas celebration is really about! The Lord of all creation has come to bring light and life to all people. As we give our lives to Jesus, He speaks into our lives and light bursts forth in brilliant beams. This light transforms us from the inside and we are made new. As you celebrate with family and friends this Christmas, look at the lights around you and remember ‘The Light’ of the world. As you do that, remember that He has come to make us lights to this world as well. What an honor, to be given the Light of God to share with others who are in darkness. Surely, this is what Christmas is was and is about.
Dear God, Thank You for Christmas and the light given to men through Your Son, Jesus. Father, forgive me of my sins and fill me with Your light so that I may share You with this dark world. In Jesus’ name, Amen
If you dont know Jesus personally, what a gift to give yourself. Ask jesus into your heart and start experiencing a new life, a life of freedom.
