Christmas: The Gift Is In The Name

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:11 (NIV)

Christmas is such a wonderful time. I love to hear the music, the bells, and the laughter in the air. I also enjoy watching the lights and decorations. It’s just all joyful and colorful. Undoubtedly, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

Nonetheless, it’s not the gifts or the parties and festivities that express the meaning of the season. Christmas goes way beyond all that. So much deeper, with so much history behind its meaning. It is a time that reminds us to follow the star.

When God thought about you and me, He had a plan that would warrant us the best life insurance ever: eternity with Him in heaven. The name of the life insurance policy is JESUS.

God had the plan, and in order to fulfill that plan, He sent His only Son to earth for us. And the plan included a very simple birth, in a place that no woman would like to lie down to receive her firstborn: a barn filled with animals. Yet, it was there that the baby came into the world.

Those who expected Him were told to follow a star and so they did. They must have been so surprised when the star they followed led them to a barn filled with animals, to find the little baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

A story so humble, so without pomp and circumstance to announce the birth of a king, but not just any king, the King of Kings, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Christmas is the day to celebrate His birth. It’s God’s reminder to us that there is hope for humanity and that we are not forgotten. The Lord sent the gift, and we are ever so blessed he did. Happy birthday, Jesus!

“Dear Lord, thank You for the gift of salvation You have given us through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Hallowed be Your name.”


For His Glory
