In just a few more weeks, Christmas Day will be upon us.
It is so easy it is to get overwhelmed with all the things to do and prepare for.
When you’re overwhelmed, the best thing to do is to take a minute and remind yourself what Christmas means and why we celebrate it.
Christmas is a holiday that celebrates the gift of God’s love and presence through Jesus Christ.
To restore you.
To reconcile you.
To renew you.
Jesus was born for you.
He who was from the beginning became flesh so you would know God.
Christmas is a reminder and a celebration of this truth:
“But whoever did want him, who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said, He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves.” John 1:12 MSG
Wherever you are in your preparations for Christmas, my prayer is that your heart would be filled with the wonder of living loved as a child of God through the gift of Jesus today and every day after will be a celebration of it!
