It is Christmas Eve, everything is done, now we are able to just sit back and relax. This is a time of year I have always enjoyed, but now working for the Post Office it can also be a time you dread. You know Christmas means lots of packages and cold, long days. At this time of year there are lots of things competing for our attention.
As we go through tonight and tomorrow enjoy all the things that come with Christmas, but do not lose focus of the reason we have to celebrate Christmas. Jesus, God's Son, was born into this world as a helpless little baby. Through Him the greatest gift that could ever be given would be provided, salvation. Through His life, His death, His resurrection, Jesus came to make a way for all of us to be able to reach God. We did not earn it, we do not deserve it, it is a gift, a free gift. This is the reason we celebrate Christmas:
For there was born that day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Have a Merry and Blessed Christmas
