Well I can’t believe it Christmas will be here in only a few days, woo hoo! I’m so excited I am a huge Christmas fan, I love everything about Christmas the lights, the music, the presents, but most of all I love what it REALLY is, the celebration of Jesus coming to this Earth to bring us hope! The Grinch is great & Santa is pretty cool but let’s face it Jesus is the real hero of Christmas & despite what modern day society may say, Jesus is still the reason for Christmas!

This is one of my favorite passages of scripture in the Bible, Luke 2:10-11 "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Wow talk about great news! I’m so glad we have a Saviour & His name is Jesus. It really angers & hurts me to see all the rules that are being made in towns & even on government properties that prohibit any Christmas decorations that are Biblically related. No manger scenes, no Angels, no baby Jesus, it’s even become politically incorrect to say Merry Christmas now. Who would have thought we’d ever see the day that Merry Christmas would become offensive to people, how sad.

I remember last year at Christmas a girl at a checkout told me “Happy Holidays” & I said “do you mean Merry Christmas?” She looked at me & sadly said “I’m not allowed to say that anymore.” I’m so thankful that Jesus was not ashamed of us, I’m so thankful that in spite of all these things He knew would come, He still came to give us hope in a hopeless world. No matter what changes in this world, one thing will never change & that’s the fact that God so loved this world that He gave his only begotten son, for all of us. That’s what Christmas is, it’s about the greatest gift that was ever given in the history of the world, the gift of love that God gave each one of us through His son Jesus.

As we all gather around our tree this Christmas I hope we never forget another tree that stood on a hill a long time ago, where the Son of God was hanging for our redemption. I’m thankful for the baby that came & went all the way to Calvary that we might have life, I can’t think of any greater gift ever given or that ever will be given than what Jesus did for each one of us so long ago, may we never forget. So in a world that may shun the name of Jesus or may find the Christ in Christmas to be unpopular or offensive in today’s society, I say Jesus is still alright with me! See I know where I’d be had He not came, I’d be lost. So this world can have a “happy holiday” if they want to but as for me & my family we will ALWAYS keep our focus on the Christ of Christmas, so MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone, be blessed.
