The Celebration of Christmas

Most people define Christmas by what they see---the trees, lights, shopping, gifts, food and parties. However, that's not what Christmas is all about. It is one of the three most important events in human history. God's plan for salvation of mankind had to begin with the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Without this, there would have bee no cruxifixion, no resurrection, and no hope for humanity.

Christmas is the celebration of that moment when God came down to earth in the form of a baby to reveal God's love for sinful mankind with His death on the cross, which paid our sin debt in full. Although we usually associate Christmas with happy celebrations, it's also an appropriate time for serious reflection about our etrnal destiny. Because Jesus came to earth, we can think about Christmas in an entirely new way. With all the distractions and traditions of the holiday, we need to be intentional about keeping Jesus the central focus. Suggestions for Christmas:

1) Open the Bible to the first chapter of Luke and place it beside the gifts under the tree as a reminder to read the story of Jesus' birth on Christmas morning.
2) Take a few moments to recall how God save you. Chare your testimony.
3) Praise Christ for what He's done for you all year long.

Once we understand the rue signifcance of Christmas, our attitude about the holiday will change. Instead of focusing on the externals and becoming exhaused with all the preparations and activities, we'll see that  Christmas is about Jesus, who came to offer us forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life.

Dr. Charles Stanley

Colossians 3:12-17

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

The Bible is God’s redemptive revelation to man. Its primary focus is to reconcile fallen man back to Himself. There was one and only one way this could be done. Atonement had to be made for man’s sins!

The church covenant is a voluntary agreement by members of the Church whereby they promise to conduct their lives in such a way as to glorify God and promote the ongoing of His Church. Every member should study it carefully, refer to it often and seek to live by it. This clearly outlines the obligation of church membership.
