The True Meaning

During a commercial I heard on the radio the other day, the speaker said "Merry Giftmas". That made me really sad. For people many people without Jesus, Christmas is just that--Giftmas. A busy time to spend hard earned money, get gifts and be around family you can't stand. They miss the true meaning of Christmas. You hear people saying, "Don't forget the true meaning of Christmas!" and "Jesus is the reason for the season!" Even many Christians, though, have forgotten what the true meaning of Christmas is. Yes, Jesus is the reason for the season, but not as a little baby. Christmas is not about a cute baby being born and people coming from miles away to see Him. That is the story, yes, but Christmas is about a Savior, God, being born in human form, born to die thirty-three years later for your sins and my sins. Christmas is about our Savior being born. There are so many hurting people around this time of year, just looking for hope and something to believe in. Perhaps you could share with them the true meaning of Christmas, and the hope it gives you. Look for ways to add grace to people's lives. Above all,
Merry Christmas!

In Him,
Becky :)
