Reflect on meaning of Christmas season
Have you ever stopped to reflect how remarkable it is that we still remember the birth of Jesus Christ some 2000 years on?
And for that matter, we still remember his death too (at Easter).
Hundreds of songs have been written about Jesus, and are still sung today.
Millions of people have been changed by Jesus, and still follow him today.
Billions of people have come and gone during the past 2000 years. But there is no one quite like Jesus — “God with us”.
And there is no one who had a mission quite like Jesus — “He will save His people from their sins”.
On the night of his birth, an angel declared: “Today in the town of David, a saviour has been born to you.”
Although we have all rebelled against the God who lovingly made us and gives us life, he sends us a saviour to rescue us from the judgment our rebellion deserves.
He sends us his one-of-a-kind son. He sends us Jesus.
Christmas reminds us that God is merciful; that you are loved; and that we can be forgiven and reconciled back to God.
A saviour has been provided for you. He invites you to entrust your life to him.
