1 SAMUEL 12:24 ~ "Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you."
As Christmas Day is fast unfolding, we understand all the joys and cheers this Season brings. However, let us NOT forget that the message of Christmas is the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and NOT us. Christmas is about LOVE and GIVING and NOT about ourselves and receiving.
Christmas is NOT how much gifts or fancy food we have on our table, but how much our heart beats for the LOVE of God that is so great of a salvation, by GIVING His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).
As we reflect on what God has done in our own lives all these years, we hope that you would also do the same. Let us reflect and thank God for giving us His Son and thank His Son, the Lord Jesus, for His willingness to humble Himself and left His Kingly throne 2,000 years ago because of His LOVE for US.
Let us be reminded, that without the birth of Jesus, there would be NO Christmas that we all so cherish and enjoy. After all, JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
