What’s Your Reason for the Season?

Trimming the tree with tinsel and glitter . . .

Santa Claus, Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman . . .

Gift giving and receiving . . .

All make for good Christmas cheer.

But do you know that the best part of Christmas cheer is sometimes obscured by the good?

Before the world began, God chose to send His Son Jesus into the world on “Christmas Day.” Jesus was born to die to set us free from our sins if we will trust Him. And each year we celebrate the birthday of the One who loved us and gave His life for us.

Is Jesus your reason for the season?

If not, consider getting away from the Christmas rush for a few moments. Quiet yourself and read the Christmas Story in the Bible (Luke 1:5-2:20, Matthew 1:18-2:23).

Marvel at the miraculous virgin birth.
Gaze in awe at the angels filling the night sky, telling the shepherds of the new birth of the
baby King.
Worship with the wise men the child who made unconditional love visible to all the world.

Make Jesus your reason for the season and He will make this your best Christmas ever.

To learn more about Jesus, read the Bible, talk to a friend who knows Jesus, visit a church where Jesus is preached as God with us.
