A Christmas Perspective

It's Christmas again ! Lights and trees are going up everywhere. Parties have already been planned. The stores and malls are being filled with gift seekers
For those of us who are saved, we focus on the Reason for the Season:
Jesus !

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23 KJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-5, 10-14 KJV)

He came down so that he could lift us up ! He was born to die ! He that knew no sin became sin for us ! He gave the greatest gift of all: Himself ! Let this be the most Christ-filled Christmas that you have ever had ! As we give gifts, think about the one true Gift ! Jesus is what Christmas is all about !
