What Does Christmas Mean?

Christmas means---The Importance of Christ.

It is not just about finding and giving that perfect gift or running around stressing yourself out over how much money you spent on gifts or did you get everyone exactly what they wanted. This is not what Christmas is about, all though it seems that way. Christmas has become so commercialized over the years, we go from July4th straight to Christmas bypassing Halloween and Thanksgiving. Christmas Season comes earlier and earlier every year. We have lost sight of the real meaning of Christmas.

Christmas is about the Perfect Gift that was given to all of us so we may have eternal life with our Father who is in heaven. Christmas is about the importance of Christs Birth, for with out it we would not have open communication with God the Father and we would not have the ability to spend eternal life with them in heaven. Jesus came down to earth and became a human to restore the relationship God so desired with the people he created in his image....US! IF not for God giving us this great and perfect Gift we would not have the fellowship we have today with God.

We need to take the time during this season of our life and reflect on Jesus Birth and what it really means. It was the greatest gift ever, the perfect gift one that can never be duplicated but only passed on to everyone and every generation. IF you are looking for that perfect gift look no further than Jesus Christ and share the story of his birth with everyone you know and meet. We need to be giving of ourselves from our heart not our pocket book. God gave from his heart not his wallet!

If you think you have nothing to give this Christmas you are wrong! You have yourself and the sharing of the Perfect gift you many many many years ago.  Don't get caught up in the hype of Christmas, get caught up in the "REAL REASON FOR THE SEASON......The BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD AND SAVIOR!" Now get out there and start giving!
