A Reason to Celebrate

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

This is the season of advent… the time of “waiting.”  In this advent season, Christ brings hope, love, joy and peace.  It is a time to renew our hearts in anticipation of what is to come.

Throughout the Christmas season, I like to get in my car at night and drive through neighborhoods looking at all the lights.  I love all the decorations… the lights, the tree, the stockings, the nativity scene.  They all remind me that Jesus loves me.  He loves me so much that He left His heavenly home to live among us.  He loves me so much that He chose to come in the form of a helpless infant and be born in a stable.  He loves me so much that He chose every day to live without sin, even though he was tempted just like we are.  He loves me so much that He died for me the most awful death imaginable.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year for many reasons.  There are years of traditions and memories that I hold dear.  I love taking the time to find just the right gift for everyone to show them that I care about them and am glad they are in my life.  I love how Christmas gives a reason for families to get together that might be too busy and can’t find the time to see each other otherwise.  It is a time to enjoy one another, to laugh together, to celebrate life.  Jesus loves us, and that’s reason to celebrate!

Join us on Sunday mornings this month as we prepare for the celebration of Jesus’ coming to earth to be our Savior.
