Read: Philippians 2
Christmas is a festive season where families get together and have a great holiday time together. The true meaning of Christmas is forgotten at times. It is a day where some people prefer to party and get drunk. Isn’t Christmas truly about Jesus Christ? Jesus came into this world as a human being “who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross” (Phil. 2:6-8). A price was paid by Jesus for coming to this world. He was born of a virgin, Mary and had an earthly family. Though Jesus Christ was King, He was born in a poor condition to poor parents. We must be reminded about that when we overspend in the name of Christmas.
When we partake in the spirit of Christmas, we must be reminded that when Jesus comes the next time, He would be coming as a Righteous Judge (Rev. 19:11) and not as a helpless infant lying in a crib, as portrayed by many. Each day is to be set apart to remember Jesus Christ and not just the day of Christmas. All days were created by Him and for Him (Col. 1:16). Jesus Christ came into this world for us, that we would not perish by the wrath of the Heavenly Father. John 3:36 says, “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” He came to this world so that we can have fellowship with the true God. Are you willing to accept Jesus as your personal Saviour?
