We celebrate Christmas for one reason: the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior. But have you ever wondered why we ONLY acknowledge and celebrate once a year? For all He is, for all He does, for whom He is, let's remember to celebrate Jesus every day! For had it not been for his birth, where would we be?
We celebrate Christmas because Jesus was God in human flesh, sent from Heaven to take away our sins and bring hope for the future. To put it another way, Jesus came into the world to bring us back to God. Because of Him, "we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:1).
Hopefully Christmas has been more than presents and parties, and you've taken the time to focus on Jesus. He truly is the only gift that keeps on giving! His gift impacts us daily, and so He should be part of your life every day as well. Our relationship with Him should continue to grow every day, not just at Christmas.
Let the wonder of that first Christmas fill your life today—and every day. Celebrate Christ(mas) - all year long!
