Charles Stanley – The Reason for Christmas
Christmas is not all about shepherds or mangers, its all about God’s pure love for us, in other to celebrate Christmas honestly, we have to deal with Jesus, Christmas is all about Jesus, not about the gifts and the presents we buy for our family and friends, the big question is do we really celebrate Christmas or just a holiday? Though most people in the world want to call it a holiday because to them it has nothing to do with Jesus, its basically about money pleasure and fun to them.
However, Christmas is all about God almighty coming to earth in the person of his Son Jesus Christ, living among men, dying on the cross, rising from the grave, ascending to heaven and seated at the right hand of the father to hear the cries and plea’s of his people and sinners. hence, when we think of Christmas we should think of it in this lite.
For those of us who do not believe in the Christmas story and its significance for them, its significance is that, if you ignore it, you will die and be eternally separated from God, then there will be no more hope or second chance for you, it is the moment we have the privilege of asking Christ into our lives and not just a holiday.
A prayer of repentance
God, I am a sinner but I believe what I have just read, and I am asking you to forgive me of my sins, though I don’t deserve it. I am just asking you to forgive me of my sins because you promised that and in this moment I receive Jesus Christ as my personal saviour and to follow him from this day forward, Amen.
