What does CHRISTMAS mean to you? If this season of year is all about the hustle and bustle, lights and tinsel, giving and receiving, candle light and soft music, programs and parties, dressing up and going out — then you have missed it! All those things have their place, but CHRISTMAS is really all about the BABE that came so that He could die and provide eternal life. If He had not come as a BABE, we would not have CHRISTMAS; and we would not have had the DEATH of Christ or the RESURRECTION. CHRISTMAS is where the story began. Let’s not forget the real meaning of it all! Mary and Joseph, Bethlehem, the angels, the shepherds, and later the wise men all had a part — we can too!
O come let us adore Him, Christ the LORD!
