The Christmas season is an important holiday to celebrate especially to all Bible-believing Christians. It is the proof of God’s promised of a Messiah fulfilled in the birth of Jesus. It is essential to remember that God took the time to make this event significant to humanity as a whole. The plan for the salvation of humanity was a top priority for God. Thus, the characters that God chose were central to it. Each one of them responded to God’s calling and became recipient of His purpose. And after more than 2000 years, the whole world celebrates with us of this glorious event filled with supernatural signs and miracles: the virgin birth; the star of Bethlehem; the concert for the shepherds. They were ordained to prove God’s mighty power that no one can deny.
This Christmas, we must reflect on all of these supernatural things in order for us to remove our eyes off the commercialism, stress and many others towards the real reason for the season i.e., Jesus Christ. Let us continue to use this opportunity to bring back our focus to the Son of God from God’s perspective. We must make sure that the Christ of Christmas must be highlighted first and foremost. There are two things that must not be forgotten this Christmas, “Unto us a Child is born” and “Unto us a Son is given” (Isaiah 9:6). The birth of Jesus Christ was the turning point for humanity’s history. God came in human flesh as a proof of His love to us. Praise the Lord!
