Millions of people around the world who celebrated at Christmas did not celebrate Christmas. Many of them have no idea what Christmas is about. Even though in thousands of places carols are sung, nativity plays performed and cards are exchanged depicting the Bethlehem manger scene. Even though gift-giving is symbolic of remembrance of God dispatching Jesus on a life-saving mission – His love gift.
Christmas is a time of celebrating what God did. He came to Earth in the person of Jesus Christ, to do what no other could do. For the purpose of procuring our salvation.
1 Timothy 1:15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
