On December 25th each year the birthday of Christ is celebrated. Or is it? How often are you reminded of the reason for the season?
In case you did not know, the actual day of Christ birth is not known. What we do know is that He was born, He died, and He rose from the dead. That is the Gospel truth. In the current culture today, it is very unpopular to remind anyone that the reason for the celebration should never be overshadowed by the buying of gifts, trees, etc. When did this notion that you have to buy gifts for others for Christmas begin? Whoever started needs to explain it to me. If we understand what the Bible teaches, we would know that the best gift we can give Jesus is our heart. After doing this, then we should live lives that demonstrate that we have trusted in Him. This would be a joyful everlasting gift that I am sure He would be pleased to receive.
It is truly impossible to celebrate His birthday without reverencing the purpose of His life and death. He died that we might live.
Be Blessed and may God grant you peace everlasting.
