What is your favorite part of Christmas?
I’ll get us started …
My favorite part of Christmas is the very heart of its existence. The fact that we have joy, peace, comfort, and hope through the Savior we so desperately need. No other religion has a god like Thee God. Our God is the only one that doesn’t say we have to earn His love, forgiveness, grace, or eternal life. In fact, He says that we can’t! It’s a gift He gives us, and it came in the humble form of a baby in Bethlehem long ago who ended up paying the ultimate price for all of our sins that death would lose its sting, and we would have hope in a dark and broken world.
That is what Christmas is about – true hope and joy that penetrates and permeates the very soul. The ultimate gift that can’t help but make us want to burst out in song, praise, and laughter. That makes us want to spread cheer and extend that same love and generosity that was extended to us when we least deserved it.
While I love the lights, carols, trees, movies, hot cocoa, baking, and presents, they are shadows in the light of the greatest, most amazing, timeless gift of all – Jesus, our Immanuel, God with us.
Okay, it’s your turn!
