What is the reason to celebrate Christmas?

Christmas for many is about gifts and food, lights, Christmas decors and family gathering. While all these are good, the true reason to celebrate Christmas is more than that. Christmas is attributed to an event in history also accounted in the Bible of how the God of all creation sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ born of a virgin into the world to give Hope to mankind that is plaque by sins…

This Hope, Jesus Christ indeed calls for a celebration of His coming into the world every year. This very act, pictures of the amazing love God has for His workmanship and that is you and me. And the reason for His coming is also clearly revealed in one verse. And that is to “save us from our sins.” Because our sins if not repented on and forgiven of God through Jesus Christ, then the payment for that is our condemnation in Hell for all eternity…

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1:21

So the Hope that Jesus brings to mankind has a condition attached to it. And the condition is for us to repent of our sins and put our Faith and trust in Jesus Christ, for the work He has done on the cross, shedding His Blood for us to pay for our sins instead of us rotting in Hell for the punishment of our sins. May we all view Christmas in the manner that the Bible teaches us so our celebration has a great depth and meaning for the Hope we have in Christ Jesus…
