Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!! From my heart to yours. I pray this Christmas just hits differently for you and your family.

What do I mean? I mean, let this Christmas be the best one yet.

And I’ll answer … By remembering Jesus.

Despite what may have or haven’t happened. Despite what you may have gone through. Regardless of what you could or couldn’t buy, say or do. Enjoy this Christmas. Someone may be asking, how can I do that when loved ones are gone, bills are due, sickness in my body, I’m alone, … (the dots represent all the things you could list).

See, when you take a moment and remember Jesus maybe the worry and anxiety over the number of presents will disappear and you’ll enjoy the presence of those around you (or the memories of those no longer here). Maybe, if you remember Jesus, this holiday and each one after can be about making memories instead of mess. What if we remembered Jesus and simply celebrated His mother’s sacrifice and His birth with family and friends instead of worrying?

Because His birth was more than Christmas trees and presents. It gave us a deliverance we desperately needed. It repaired our relationship with God, freed us from the bondage of sin, took the stain sin would leave, and gave us free access to God. Jesus’ birth was to deliver us from us. This is why and what we celebrate.

So, today, enjoy the merry of Christmas. Everything else can wait.
