Five more days until Christmas.
Five more days before we celebrate Jesus’ birth.
Well, that’s not really true. We actually start celebrating the birth of our Savior way before the 25th of December. We are celebrating him when we put up our Christmas lights. Jesus is the Light of the World.
We begin celebrating Jesus’ birth when we start buying gifts for one another. Jesus was God’s perfect gift to us.
We start celebrating Jesus’ birth when we invite friends and neighbors over for Christmas festivities. Jesus loved us first and wants us to share that love with others every day – not just on Christmas.
My celebration of Jesus’ birth can’t be limited to just one day or one month. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6.
Jesus is my way, my truth and my life. He gives me hope. He fulfilled God’s promise of grace providing a way for me to have a personal relationship with my Abba Father.
So I celebrate Jesus’ birth and life every day. I am grateful for his death and resurrection every day. Each day I look forward to seeing my Savior in heaven when my journey on this planet is done.
Christmas is a special time as the rest of the world joins with me in celebration.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
