Just when we are about to enjoy the frills of Christmas; would it be fair to ask, why celebrate Christmas? History attests to the birth of Jesus and points to His death as the start of the calendar. The birth of Jesus from which we celebrate Christmas is just half of the story.
The Cross unleashed the deepest meaning; the birth made humanity real while His death made it possible for mankind to enter into a personal relationship with Him.
We cannot enjoy Christmas for all it was meant to be until we acknowledge the vacuum in our heart which was brought about by our sinfulness; as the Bible says in Romans 3:23. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. We fill in that vacuum with things and religions when in reality what we need is a relationship with the One who died on the cross…
I’d like to give you the opportunity right now to have a relationship with Jesus. You will never find a better offer, nor make a better decision. I’ll help you put it into words. You could say to him,
“Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins and paying the penalty. I open the door and invite you into my life. I want to know you. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me an eternal relationship with you. Amen.”
