Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

The reason for the season

on December 24, 2012

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” -James 1:17

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” -2 Corinthians 9:15 (KJV)

The reason for the season is Christ! God’s most precious gift is Jesus. Advent is a time for waiting, anticipation, gratitude, and preparation for Jesus’ coming. And here, it is Christmas Eve and Jesus’ birth is almost upon us.

Yes, we look forward to giving and receiving gifts, singing carols, spending time with family, and eating good comfort food. But the true meaning of Christmas is to dwell on Jesus and all that He is in our lives.  Let “Merry Christmas” be more than a simple greeting. Let us feel the hope that Jesus gives us and share our joy with others. He is a gift we can never repay. And we owe our thanks and devotion to God for Him.

Praying for hope, joy, and peace this Christmas and always, as we look forward to Jesus’ coming.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”  Romans 15:13
