“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11, NKJV)

It was as if God was saying,

This is the true celebration of Christmas. Just as it was the first time in the lowly cow stall, in a dusty, dirty, smell village, the story of your Savior is being proclaimed to the needy and the lost. Christmas is not the gifts, the snow, the music or the food. It is not the things that make you comfortable. Christmas it the telling of the good news. It is the chance for the sinner to rejoice.

With tears, I could almost hear the angels singing, “Glory to God in the highest, peace on earth, good will to all men.”

Never forget what Christmas really is: the good news of salvation told to those who are afraid, hungry and in need of a Savior.

Prayer: Father God, never let me forget the true meaning of Christmas. Let this time of year be an opportunity to spread the Good News that Jesus came, died, was buried and rose again for all people groups. Amen.
