Most Americans would certainly say that Christmas is their favorite holiday. But why is that so? For many its the time with family, the gifts or all that wonderful Christmas food ! (By the way what’s some of your favorites?). But for the child of God Christmas should be so wonderful because of the purpose itself. In Luke 2:10-11, the beloved physician wrote, “And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.’ ”
Christmas happened because God came to save us ! We blew it way back in Eden – man decided wrong, we sinned, we rejected God’s Word and let Him down by not trusting Him and heeding Satan. And what was God’s response? To reach out to save us !! Wonder of wonders !!!! How are we prone to respond when we are rejected? We don’t normally, as humans, reach out to help those who have offended us. So why does God? The apostle John answers that best: “God is love” (1 Jn.4:8,16). If you are not SURE you are going to heaven, if you only HOPE you are, then ask the Savior to forgive you for being a sinner and ask Him to save you. If you have done this and have seen the peace that that brings then show the wonder of Christmas to someone the next time they diss you and make them wonder ! It may just draw them to He Who makes us all wonder !! Have a merry Christmas and never get over the wonder of it all !!!
