It is a true saying, in which all may put their faith, that Christ Jesus came into the world to give salvation to sinners, of whom I am the chief: 1 Timothy 1:15
Millions of people throughout the world celebrate Christmas without Celebrating Christmas. They have no idea of what Christmas is about, or what it means. Even in places where carols are sung, nativity plays performed, cards exchanged depicting manger scenes and gift giving occurs, which was first of all in remembrance of God’s dispatching His Son, Jesus on a life-saving mission – His love gift to us. As you celebrate Christmas this year celebrate what god has done. He came down to earth in the person of Jesus, to do what no other could do, as the Bible verse above says, the purpose of His coming was our salvation.
Lord, help me remember and understand what happened that first Christmas, and make it mean more to me this year.
