CHRISTMAS – the most popular holiday or season of the year. Yet most of us forget or does not really know it’s meaning or importance or why do we celebrate it.
It is not about gift giving. It will never be about the food we eat during the Christmas eve neither the new clothes we wear and the exact date when our Savior was born.
It is all about Christ. My savior. Your Savior. My Lord. Your Lord.
CHRISTMAS is a personal invitation to us from God. Because He knows you and me. He invites you because you are important to Him. You are one of His Lost children and He is inviting you to seek Him by giving your whole heart to His Son Jesus Christ to be reunited with Him again. It is also a privilege invitation. God is giving you a favor and a present which is CHRIST himself. CHRISTMAS is an invitation to believe God and experience HIM.
the best RESPONSE - ACCEPT God’s invitation and participate. Accept JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR
REASONS WHY WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
1. like the shepherds we were chosen to receive the Good news (Luke 2:10) and God chose you to have the good news
2. because the baby (Jesus Christ) was born for us (Luke 2:11)
3. Because He will bring peace (luke 2 13:14)
4. because we can experience Christ and tell others about Him (luke 2:15-17) and
5. because we can glorify and praise God (luke 2:20)
How do we worship Christ
the Magi’s bowed down before Him. Therefore we should humble our selves before him and give our worshiping heart of seeking and praising.
the Magi’s gave Him GOLD which is worth for a king. the only KING. the king of kings and Lord of Lords. They gave Him incense which was recommended by God and has a pleasing aroma. We should therefore be pleasing before God’s eyes and not to the world like the king Herod and the pharisees. and the last, MYRRH (IT IS GIVEN OR USED FOR THE DEAD) BECAUSE CHRIST WAS BORN IN ORDER TO DIE FOR US.
LET US THEREFORE BELIEVE, CELEBRATE AND WORSHIP THE LORD THIS SEASON AND IN EVERYDAY OF OUR LIVES
MERRY CHRISTMAS! =)
