What more is there to say? A Savior came to us to give us eternal life. Did we deserve it? Not at all, but God’s love is so much deeper than a love we can comprehend. Christmas will always be way more than gifts, but remember that someone came to us to give us freedom.
Let’s talk about Jesus. I know this month wasn’t the literal date of his birth, but it’s always a good time to stop and remember what Jesus came to do and why He came to this earth. If you’re unfamiliar or need a refresher here’s what happened. Mary was set to marry Joseph when an angel came and told her she would have a child. Obviously, it was going to be hard since she was a virgin and they weren’t married but they went through with it and in a stable Jesus was born. I remember hearing songs like, “Mary Did You Know” and just get caught up on the miracle that it was.Christmas was when love took physical form. Click To Tweet
Christmas is a sweet reminder of God’s love. One of my favorite Christmas songs is “I Celebrate the Day” by Relient K because it paints this picture of Jesus and what his thoughts could’ve been.
And the first time that You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior. And the first breath that left Your lips, did You know that it would change this world forever?
We can look at the cute nativity but Jesus’ birth was so much more. Love took physical form. We can always try to imagine how they felt that moment when he was finally born but we really can’t. So this Christmas remember the Savior. A sweet child that came for us who would do so much. Let’s rejoice in the day and remember that Jesus was the greatest gift of all.
For to us, a child is born, to us, a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. | Isaiah 9:6
