CHRISTMAS MUST BE MORE THAN THE “FUZZIES”
If Christmas is only about emotions, material goods, and relationships, then you have to be extremely lucky in order to really appreciate the season. Everything has to line up just right. You have to see the right movies, hear the right songs, drop the right hints to get the right presents, hope that everyone is in the right mood, hope the weather doesn’t mess up your travel plans. And it’s almost impossible to manufacture those conditions. If you luck out, you’ll have a good Christmas.
Take away all of the warm fuzzies, all of the presents, all of the moments when families and friends come together, and the true significance of Christmas doesn’t change. Here it is in a nutshell: God takes on flesh and comes to Earth in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, lives the perfect and sinless life that you and I cannot live, dies on a cross to pay the penalty for sin – a penalty that you and I couldn’t pay in all of eternity – and rises from the dead three days later, so that you and I can have eternal life.
“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” – Galatians 4:4-5
Christmas is about God coming to save you and me.
