New Hope Community Church
All of this is fun and exciting for the young at heart but let us not forget the reason for the season. This is the time when around the world we recognize the one who has forever changed our calendar and our world. His name is Jesus of Nazareth. The angel proclaimed, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Christ is the reason we can have a Merry Christmas. It is the day when God became flesh and dwelt among us. It is the day that our Savior, the only one who can save us from our sins came to this earth. When I say or hear someone say, Merry Christmas, I want to always remember that Christmas is really all about the gift of God to us. Let me encourage you to make room for Christ in yourChristmas. Read the story from Luke 2:1-20 and know that God loves you so much that He came to be your Savior. Decorate your trees, sing your favorite Christmas song, give out gifts but also when you say Merry Christmas thank the Lord for coming to be your Lord and Savior.
