Merry Christmas!

24 Dec

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

Isn’t it weird how Christmas has such a different feeling the older you get? When you’re younger, say up until middle school or so, Christmas pretty much runs your life during the Christmas season. (Whoa, I’m using the word Christmas a lot…) Last night, my little cousin was talking in her sleep (I kid you not!) about “a.. a box” and how she “didn’t want a Barbie.” I  can only assume she was dreaming about Christmas. Anyway. Point being, younger kids get so hyped up about holidays, where (at least from what I’ve experienced) for those of us that are pretty much middle school and up, the holiday is still fun, but more relaxed.

…Well, sometimes.

There’s also the side of it that is so much more stressful. We have soooo many people over. We try to do soooo many things. We have to cook soooo much food. We have to find presents for everyone on our lists–meaning that we probably will have to battle a huge crowd of other Christmas shoppers. Sometimes I start to think, with all the stress, we almost forget what this season is really about.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

So says Luke 2:11. That’s the point of Christmas. I have to refer now to John 3:16 (Don’t groan. This verse may be the verse that every little Christian kid knows by heart, but it holds so much truth.)

For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

Christmas was the very beginning of our salvation. It is the day of Jesus’ birth. You know, when you think about Christmas, it is incredible. God loves us all so much that he sent his only son to Earth as a human baby. Later, He would give up His own life to give us salvation. Life eternal.

When the season’s getting you stressed out and frustrated, take a few moments to ponder God’s amazing love for us, and what He did for us. The miracle He sent to bring us to Him. And guys, spread the love. Show the “Reason for the Season” by the things that you do, the things that you say. Let people see God’s light through you.

It’s Christmas. Spread the Love.
