Another Christmas season is behind us, and now we must determine how the birth of Christ will change how we live for the next 365 days. Because that’s the point, isn’t it? Christmas isn’t about giving and receiving gifts from others. It’s about accepting the gift given to us by God. It’s the only gift that lasts, the only gift that truly satisfies you, and the only gift that brings eternal life along with it.
How many times during the past Christmas season did you stop to consider that? How often are you considering it now? We don’t live with a sense of wonder and awe, but we should. The gift of Jesus is unbelievable, undeserved, without a doubt, unappreciated.
