What Does Christmas Mean To You?...

Earlier in the week the question was posed, "What does Christmas mean to you?"

I've given this question a lot of thought this week...

Of course Christmas is a celebration of Christ's birth...but I also see Christmas as an opportunity.  I watch so many people during Christmas that sing along with and listen to songs about Christ and salvation.  Songs that quote directly from Scripture...

I watch people during Christmas who need Jesus...they celebrate his birth, out of habit...pausing at the manger scene, never getting to the blood....

Christmas is the perfect season for bring Christ to the forefront of every conversation.  To share with others the unfathomable act of selfless, sacrificial love...God left heaven's glory to die in sinners' place. He offered mercy to people who deserved only His wrath....

Christmas brings a lesson of love...Christs his coming, in his life and in his death.  A love that sacrificed. 

And so I ask you...what does Christmas mean to you? 

Merry Christmas to you...may you find the joy and the peace the Jesus brings, if you will only accept Him into your heart.


  1. Merry christmas to you and your guys. It's been a fun year blogging and meeting you in person.

    And the rotating tree . . it's a pain in the behind. I'm pretty sure it came from Hobby Lobby about 6 years ago.

    Merry christmas

    PS Was that you he saw at El Jimado's on Monday?

  2. You know what it means to me...HOPE. All is well because He came just for me and can make it beautiful again.
