December comes along and everyone is excited for Christmas and a new year. Lights are being hung, trees are being decorated, and snow is coming down. For many people Christmas is a time of buying presents, cooking, shopping, housing parties or wrapping gifts. Everyone is so overwhelmed and stressed out that they forget the true meaning of Christmas, which is the birth of Jesus, the same Jesus that died on the cross to save us from sins. Christmas is supposed to be a time of year to recognize and appreciate all that Jesus has done for us. Christmas has turned into a commercial holiday rather than a religious one. Although getting presents and spending time with family are all good things but also remembering Christ while doing these things is what’s most important. Christmas is a season of great joy, and is a time of God showing His love for us, but it can also be a time of healing and renewed strength.
