Merry Christmas

December 25, 2015

Luke 2:11
"For into you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." Yes, Christmas is about giving. It's about joy. It's about love. It's about the gift of joy and love through Christ.
We can get so caught up into this world and forget that there is one ultimate gift. Yes, it's okay to be happy about that gift you finally received after all your pleas. But don't forget that the joy of the season is because of who God sent down to earth, His Son, Christ Jesus.

God knew the decision He was making. The decision to send Christ down to die on the cross for our sins. The decision to give us a second chance. 

I find giving people a second chance hard. How do I turn my cheek when someone verbally attacks me? How do I get over the fact that those words that they said will always be in the forefront of my kind when I see them. 

How did God say "Okay, let's give those who rebuked and spit on my name a second chance"? That's a question that I don't quite understand, because I'm not perfect or holy. 

As we celebrate Christmas, remember who and why this season really exists – the coming of Christ.
Thanks to God's amazing love, He sent His only Son. Thanks to the crown of thorns that Jesus wore for us. We are set free. 

Take a moment today to celebrate, remember, and worship Christ who came for us. This is a time to celebrate with friends, family, laughter, giving, smiles, and most of all Christ.

Merry Christmas!
