What is the true meaning of Christmas?
How often have you heard it said “that is the true meaning of Christmas”? Well many of them are wrong! The true meaning of Christmas is a God who loves us so much that He sent His only Son to us.
Jesus came as a helpless baby (can you imagine holding God in your arms as Mary did?) Jesus suffered the cold and heat, ridicule and torment, hunger and thirst… all for you. He was told what to do and He did it without complaint.
When Jesus grew up, He taught the masses. Many who came, came just to see what miracle they could see. The leaders came to Him to harass, and discredit, Him. No one really understood Him or truly believed.
Then, to pay the penalty for your sins, He gave up His life, stretched out His arms on the cross, and died – for you! On the third day, He rose again to give you eternal life, if you only believe in Him. Now, that is the true meaning of Christmas.
May God give you understanding of, and comfort from, the TRUE meaning of Christmas this year.
