The Real Reason

Christmas is around the corner. December 25 will appear quicker than we would like. And as fast as it makes an appearance it will be gone again. The world has made this day as a day for gifts. A day of trinkets, toy trains and baubles.  For me, it is a day to celebrate and spread joy!

Many people find joy in the giving. For others it’s all about the receiving.

Over 2000 years ago, we were given the greatest gift one could ever receive.  The King of the world, Creator God born as a baby to save us. From sin and darkness. To offer salvation, freedom and redemption.

Jesus is the REAL reason for why gifts are exchanged. God gave us his son….

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish,but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Our gifts to one another can never match the magnitude of the gift of eternal life and/or the freedom from condemnation, but they can show the love in one’s heart that ‘they cared enough’ to.think of you; much like God thought of you when he gifted his Son Jesus Christ to all of us.

May we never forget the Real Reason for each Christmas season.

Merry Christmas!

Jesus Loves You!
