I pray you all had a very blessed day filled with family, friends and much love as we all celebrated the birth of the Messiah Jesus Christ. This season is my favorite for many reasons but I’d like to share with you what’s been on my heart throughout advent and Christmas this year.
Christmas is a time to gather with family and friends and exchange gifts. Traditions are always fun and nice but the real reason for Christmas is Jesus. One song that I have been listening to a lot this season was Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground) by Chris Tomlin. The song sums up my feeling for why I celebrate Christmas.
A baby came and changed the world. God left heaven to come to this broken world in human form as a baby. He was born in a manger to Mary and Joseph. He didn’t stay a baby forever. That baby grew up and become a man. The man died on the cross for our sins.
One of my favorite quotes that I don’t know who said it was this:“Without a manger there would be no cross.”
