What a beautiful season to go shopping, buy gifts, decorate the house, go places, have fun, eat a lot, meet long lost friends and relatives or family despite traffic jams and unending expenses. We celebrate Christmas only once a year that is why we want to make the most out of it. I remember when I was a kid and Christmas is about to come, I would then begin to make a list of those people that I expect to give me gifts on Christmas. And nothing aside from this excites me! As a kid, I was just after the fun and the things that I am going to receive and experience. Sadly, I thought it was ALL about it until I was a teenager.
When I became a Christian and fell in love with my Savior, Jesus, He started to set my mindset right about Christmas. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with the things I mentioned above, they are exciting! They are fun! But if we find ourselves in the same scenario yearly, then we are missing on the most important thing: Jesus Christ, the center of it all! When Christmas begins with worship it all becomes meaningful! This is what Jesus wants. Let us make Jesus the reason and center of every single thing that we are going to do this Christmas. Let us make it more special, more exciting, more fun, and more meaningful!
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
