Celebrating the birth of Jesus is the focus of Christmas for believers. We give gifts in his honor although it’s his birthday we’re celebrating.
This time is set aside to celebrate Jesus’ entry into this world and more importantly, why he came. (Read the scriptures for yourself on his birth, location and events surrounding his birth. Warning: if you don’t believe in miracles, you won’t believe his story.)
It’s all about the amazing love of our Heavenly Father. My prayer is we remember that!
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (The unspeakable gift…John 3:16, The Bible) In fact, the Bible says that we can have abundant life now through Jesus Christ!
This is the ideal time to give him your life or rededicate your life to him. It’s his birthday season but it’s also easy to see that this world is not getting better – sad to say.
Believers are not perfect; they serve a God who is. Having a relationship with him means you are forgiven and you have his light and power within you to change your life and to become a world changer for God.
Hmp! That’s some gift – world changer! It’s well deserved! For all that God has done for us, he deserves it!
Happy Birthday Jesus! Merry Christmas all! Blessings!
