Why Christmas?


One of the questions that James was asked this month in his Q&A was -

Is justice or forgiveness more important?

And, the first part of his answer was -

Forgiveness. Jesus was right.

Christmas is the "birthday" of Jesus ... no, we don't know the exact date, but it's good to have a day and celebrate, isn't it.  Jesus is the Son of God, and was born so that we could gain forgiveness from God ... but also that we could learn to forgive others.

My Bible reading today was in Titus, and reading in "The Message", these words jumped out at me -

"Our Saviour Jesus poured out new life so generously.  God's gift has restored our relationship with Him and given us back our lives.  And there's more life to come - an eternity of life!  You can count on this."

So, in the middle of tinsel and cards, please take a moment to thank God for giving us the first, and the best, Christmas present.
