What Christmas is All About: Our Savior Born in Bethlehem

December 25th, 2014 Comments off

Tammy Sheets, Poca.In a little town, not in Bethlehem, but Arkansas, the Sheets family honors our Lord with the true meaning of Christmas.  

Luke 2

King James Version (KJV)

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

           Christmas. What do I really want?

I have always believed in the promise of Christmas.

You see, Christmas is a promise. It is a promise that has not yet been fully kept. 
Christmas cannot be all that we want it to be. It’s only a holiday. Christmas cannot bring harmony to your home. Christmas cannot bring peace on earth. Christmas cannot bring happiness.

But Christ Himself can do all of this and more. That is really what we are longing for deep inside.

• Not Christmas, but Christ. 
• Not merriment, but the Messiah. 
• Not goodwill, but God. 
• Not presents, but His presence.

Anything or anyone short of this will disappoint. But God never will. 
That’s what I want for Christmas–Jesus Christ.  

This is Christmas at its best!
