During the Christmas season we make many preparations. From the perfect gift to the perfect gathering, we sometimes stress over the details. It is good to appreciate family and to show our love and appreciation, but we need to remember that this day is about much more than our celebrations here on earth!
The season of Christmas is one that should be focused on Christ. We can begin by celebrating His birth, His arrival here on earth in human form. However, we cannot stop there! The story of Christmas continues as Jesus grows in His ministry, dies as a sacrifice for our sin, and then ascends into Heaven to reign with God the Father. We may begin our celebrations now, but they should continue throughout the year with praises to God and Jesus each and every day!
Praise God for the gift of His Son now and every day!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help me to remember His life throughout the entire year. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
