Once a year, we celebrate Christmas. But Christmas is not something we celebrate just once a year, but every day. Easter is Jesus’ work brought into completion, but Christmas marks the beginning of God’s work. Christmas, Jesus’ birth, is God’s promise to us, a promise we rely on every single day. This gift, this promise He gave us reminds us that all of God’s promises are always true. The fallen world needed a Savior, it was pining for it, and God delivered us one. Let us never forget we already received the greatest gift of all – salvation.
O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining, till He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth. A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices. For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees. [‘O Holy Night’]
