For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
The Christmas season has become a month we are bombarded with a whirlwind of consumerism, and with advertisements and promotions of all kinds on our airwaves.
It is very easy for us, even as Christians to be caught up in this whirlwind and forget the true reason for Christmas.
So let's try to answer this question: What is the meaning of the Christmas season?
First, Jesus Christ came to proclaim good news to the poor; to those who are spiritually hurting. He came to heal the broken-hearted.
Medical science has found ways to reduce and even remove pain. But there is no cure for a broken heart.
Jesus came to set us free from the bondage of sin. Jesus came to open our spiritual eyes to our spiritual need. He came to lift up those who are crushed by life.
He came to give us abundant life. Jesus came to give us hope and a future. He came to give His life for us.
Jesus said, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many".
He came to die so that we will live. Jesus Christ came to this earth to seek and save those of us who are lost, just as a shepherd seeks a lost sheep.
So in all of this hustle and bustle, wrapping paper, and brightly coloured lights, let's get down to the bottom line.
Christmas is about God sending His Son to die on a cross. He was born to die, to give us eternal life.
He came to give us eternal inheritance in the Kingdom of God.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Christmas.
Scriptural Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
