Christmas lights portray nativity scene

Since Christmas is a busy time of the year, we want to look at the true meaning of Christmas to help us remember what it’s all about: Christ. Let’s start with Bible passages that remind us of someone who is the real reason for the season.

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

You and your family could memorize the verses above to help you meditate upon the real meaning of Christmas: Jesus Christ came to earth to take our place in receiving the wrath of God so that we can receive the free gift of eternal life!

What a precious gift Christ is to us! Let’s share the Gospel with others so that they may freely receive the gift of eternal life. It is our privilege and duty to do so.
