A season greetings to everyone.. I know everyone are busy doing their last minute shopping, wrapping gifts, cooking foods, general cleaning and all the other preparations for Christmas. I am always excited when Ber Months are here, it only means that Christmas is coming. There will be Christmas carols, gifts, money (from Ninong and Ninang. Hahaha!), new clothes, food and a lot of party/reunions. Sometimes it gets exhausting due to a lot of people are down in the metro, malls are full of people, fully booked restaurants and it’s kinda magastos narin (Hahahaha. Aminin nyo! Totoo naman minsan). But what is the true meaning of this season? Mentioned above were the center of my Christmas 2 years ago before I met my Lord Jesus Christ. Since 2010, our first Christmas together He made me realized that this season is not about new clothes, gifts and parties.
23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
We celebrate Christmas to reminisce the time that Jesus Christ was born. It was the time that light and hope came into the earth. The birth of Christ symbolizes that the Savior has come and He will redeem us from all our sin.
Christmas are not about gifts, carols, foods, kids, new clothes and etc.. It is all about Jesus! Other things are just additional for us to enjoy more the season. I hope and pray that all of us will welcome Jesus in our hearts and will accept Him as our Savior.
Let’s celebrate love. Victory is in Jesus Christ.
