For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. The reason for Christmas is to celebrate the love God showed us, a love we did not deserve; while we were yet in our sins Christ came and he died for us.
This same he commanded us through his Word in 1John 4:7-8 “Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God and everyone that loveth is born and knoweth God, he that loveth not knoweth not God for God is love”.
The christain life is a life of love; Christmas is all about love, this is the period to reach out the love of Christ to world, it's a time to minister to the needs of many, it's a time of giving, it's a time to preach Jesus to the dying sinner, it's a time to forgive every wrong and every hurt, it's a time to heal every wound and pain, it's a time to unite and put away our difference because God command us to do so.
Let us not be selfish in our dealings, let Christmas become a moment of sober reflection reflecting on why Christ came to world, let us reflect on his sufferings for the sake of our redemption, let us reflect on the price he paid for us.
May God's Spirit fill our hearts, may his love over shadow us, may his peace that passes all understanding dwell in our hearts as we celebrate the birth of his begotten son Jesus Christ. Amen.
Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2017
