Merry Christmas

What is Christmas all about? Family? Fun? Presents? Singing Christmas songs? This Christmas season, I’ve heard more than ever before, “That’s what Christmas is all about!” Yesterday, as I was getting ready to watch some football with family, I caught this clip of Terry Bradshaw giving his opinion on today’s significance.

It sounded really good, didn’t it? “Folks, that’s Christmas. That’s the gift we all want, to spend this precious day with our family.” Terry’s comments capture most of what Christmas has become, a time to celebrate with family. However, that can’t be all there is to this day. I love spending time with my family too and Christmas is a special time to do that, but let’s not forget the deeper significance here. Christmas is not just about family, but it’s about the One who can bring us into God’s family. It’s about God Himself, coming to earth and taking on human flesh in order to live, die, and be resurrected that we may be saved.

I found this video yesterday that helps capture the real meaning of Christmas.

This is what Christmas is all about. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:16-17)
