Most of the Christian world waits for this holiday all year, but what does it mean to you? For some, it means lots of presents and all sorts of getting together with family. For others, it is just another holiday and for some, it is just another day on the calendar. We celebrate the birth of Jesus at this time of year but Jewish historians place His birth during the Feast of Tabernacles during September/October. Truly it doesn’t matter when you celebrate our Savior’s birth as long as you know Him as your Savior.
The Son of God was the first gift given to all of us and all we have to do is accept it when we know that we truly need it. God calls us by His Holy Spirit to convict us that we can’t get to heaven without faith in Jesus and we should accept the gift given by His grace. It is a gift given to you by the Creator of everything. Isn’t He more important than your Mom or even Santa Clause?
The gift that Jesus gave to us is more valuable than all of the money in the whole world so shouldn’t we treasure it above everything else? I do.
