The Reason We Celebrate Christmas
Christmas bells . . . Christmas Mass . . . Christmas trees . . . Christmas Gift . . . All of these symbolizes Christmas . . . But the main reason why we commemorate Christmas is because of God’s love through a Suffering Savior, Jesus Christ.
God loves you so much that He gave His one and only Son to die. John 3:16 says that:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
A single sin hinders us from coming to God. It says in Psalm 5:4,
“For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; no evil dwells with You.”
But He gave a solution. That is to send His Son as an atoning Sacrifice for all our sins.
Why would a loving father send His beloved Son to die? It is because He is thinking of you. It is because He knew that He needs to judge us in the end. God is love but He is also just.
Free will . . . it is a gift . . . a gift that can lead us to destruction if we chose not to believe. That is what God only requires . . . to believe in His Son. To trust Him. To accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior. If you hear His voice calling you now, will you let your ears hear His cry . . . His cry of wanting to be in your lives?
Let Jesus Christ be inside your heart. He can do little miracles every day. You just have to come to him and say, “I will claim Your gift of salvation.” Do not let your gift be unclaimed.
Before greeting your family and friends, you should pray and greet Jesus Christ first a happy birthday. He is the reason why we have this celebration.
You will probably have a question in your mind right now. Why do Racquel keeps on reminding me this? Because every Christian has the responsibility to share this fact. That Jesus Christ died for our sins and He rose again. If you are reading this, I want to tell you that I love you. But God loves you more than I do.
God loves you so much! Merry Christmas!
Let me end with a passage from John 1:1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life,and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness,and the darkness has not overcome it.
