Christmas

By:

This is the time of year that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Signs of the season surround us even on occasion a nativity scene on someone's lawn depicting the real meaning of Christmas.

 

Have you ever thought what it would be like if Christ had not come? The thought of no Christmas means no God taking on our flesh. There would be no heavenly hosts praising God and saying "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men."

 

Hard for us to imagine! Thanks be to God that he came as a baby to redeem the world. Taking on our flesh in order that we might take on glory. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. This Christmas let us give him our life so we can truly celebrate and know the real meaning of Christmas.
