Christmas, Devotional

What is Christmas Really About?

Christmas is a time of celebration. While we celebrate the Christmas season, many warn of its Pagan roots. It’s true that Jesus was not born on Dec 25th. Long ago, the Roman Catholic Church may have designated this date as Christ’s birth, perhaps as a means to distract people from the Pagan practices of the Winter Solstice. There are many clues in scripture and Historians have learned that Jesus was actually born in the Spring. However, there is something wondrous about the love of God. The date does not matter when we behold the Savior. We can celebrate his saving grace, and receive his peace and redemption at any time. Now, at Christmas time, the celebration intensifies because it seems the whole world is waiting, watching, and listening for a message of hope. He is the hope that the world is looking for. Use this time, to remind others that he loved us so much that he left his throne in glory, humbled himself, and was born as a babe. He made it a mission to spend time with his own creation. Tell people that through his birth, his time on earth and death and resurrection, that he demonstrated his love for us and every single soul, past, present, and future, on this earth.
