I wish everybody a Merry Christmas. When you are celebrating with whomever you celebrate, remember, this is the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. If you do not understand why we would celebrate the birth of Jesus, I invite you to get a Bible and read what we call the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. If you are intrigued, you can go into the Old Testament and study the book of Isaiah. Jesus is consistently referenced in not only Isaiah, but throughout the Old Testament, beginning with the early chapters in Genesis.
If you will do this with an open mind and earnestly search for the answer to the question you have asked for years, “Why do we celebrate Christmas,” you will begin to understand and will never look at Christmas the same again. The Bible promises that those who seek, will find. Carols like “O Holy Night” will no longer be just a beautiful piece of music, but will become a glorious song of worship. When you sing along and sing that line “it is the night of my dear savior’s birth” you can rejoice with exceeding joy.
Merry Christmas to all, and a special joyous Christmas to those who have opened and searched the scriptures for the first time.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
