‘WHAT IS THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS?’

  MATTHEW 1:20 An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said,  “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.   She will give birth to a son and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his  people from their sins.”

  What is the true meaning of Christmas?  Today is the start of the Christmas holiday “Black Friday. ”  People  going to stores and getting that computer game or that new cell phone with all the bells and whistles on it. For What? The all mighty dollar in retail stores. Not that I am picking on retail. What is the true  meaning of Christmas?

   Just as Matthew 1:21 stated, Joseph and Mary are to prepare for a child who will save us from our sins. Damnation in Hell at the end.  That is Jesus the savior. He is the reason we celebrates Christmas.  Not buying and spending.

   As  this holiday gets more commercial, we lose sight of this fact. He will save us from sin by forgiveness. He is the one we have to go to for help with our problems. For example a drinking problem; gamble too much; cheating on a spouse; or having a  life of crime. He is the one who will help us. We cannot do so on our own.

   We have to go to Jesus for that. Repent for our sins now while we have time to do so, not later.  He will assist us with problems such as getting a job for example in that bad time in our life. We have to approach and be humble in doing so. He isn’t a ATM machine that gives on command. That is not how it works.

  Finally, we have to keep God in our lives. It’s easy to lost sight on the Christmas holiday with flashy television ads and stores telling us to “Put it on credit.” Remember, that Jesus is the one we honor and that is important. In short, refreshing our souls from sin and the Devil in the end! Are you putting yourself in the Lord’s hands?

 

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR!
