Preparing for Christmas


Reflection on Christmas

Christmas is already here, ready or not. Stores have rolled out their Christmas wares and are already raking in millions of dollars. Vacations, travel plans, hotel reservations, gifts, caroling, decorations, etc. have all been concluded. But is that how best to be ready for Christmas? As Christians, Christmas is a time for deep reflection regarding God’s coming as a human into our sinful world. Our sin problem could only be resolved by the coming and dying of Jesus Christ in our place so that we could be forgiven and be reconciled with God. When John the Baptist who was the forerunner of Jesus Christ came, he preached repentance to the people as the way to prepare for the coming of the Messiah. Now that Jesus Christ has come, died, and risen for our justification, we have every reason to celebrate forgiveness and freedom from sins. Sadly, many put up so much to celebrate Christmas while still in bondage to sin. The good news is that you can give your sinful heart to Christ today. He will accept and clean you up, and this Christmas will be the best for you.
