What Does Christmas Mean to Me?
Today as I reflected on everything that we talked about at church this morning, I thought about what Christmas really means to me. Christmas is more than just “another holiday”. Christmas is the birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season with the giving and receiving of gifts, parties, and family gatherings. It is so easy to forget the real meaning of Christmas. Christmas is the time of Jesus’ birth, but it means so much more than that. I like how one of my small group teachers stated it, “Jesus was born to die.” Without the birth of Christ, He wouldn’t have died for our sins. Jesus literally came to this earth with the intention to be tortured, beaten, and crucified. I don’t know anyone with that kind of love for me!
