The True Meaning of Christmas is not a Myth or a Fairy Tale but a Time to Celebrate Hope
The baby born in Bethlehem was wrapped in swaddling clothes is the Son of God that was prophesied in the scriptures in the book of Isaiah (7:14;9:6-7).
Jesus was known as the Christ child and Mary and Joseph had a lot to do with protecting him in the early days.
The greatest gift was not gift wrapped with boxes and fancy paper, but the one God the Father wrapped.
“And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them”.
Luke 2:6-7 NLT
The Word became flesh (human) and dwelt (made his home among us) and we beheld His glory. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
This describes Jesus who has become and is the light of the world. The God of salvation for eternal life. Jesus was born in a humble manner and died in a humble manner to give us HOPE and a future. Heaven is a real place.
To keep things in perspective Jesus is not only the Son of God, Creator, but the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is Soveriegn and Ruler over the nations and the universe.
Jesus became God in the flesh incarnate supernaturally. A miracle birth and human without sin. He is divine.
“For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body”.
Colossians 2:9 NLT
The greatest gift to be cherished is Jesus Christ. The son of the Living God. ” For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only begotten Son… (John 3:16).
Jesus is our hope and is the Word of God. The Word of God is a gift that is to be cherished in this day. It is still relevant in our lives for us as human beings today. He is The Christ in Christmas!
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God” (John 1:1).
The Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwells among us!
“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God. So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son”.
John 1:12-14 NLT
God’s glory was not only seen in Christ birth, but more in His resurrection. Jesus is still alive today and God’s presence is His glory.
I have learned to trust fact over fiction any day, because God’s Word does not change. How about you? From our home to yours, enjoy the Holidays with your family/friends and have a safe and very Merry Christmas too!
