Christmas brings varying images and meanings to people's minds around the world. The truth is that our Lord Jesus Christ came due to God's love for us. He came to rescue us from the shackles of sins and restore the severed relationship with God. The legitimacy and desirability of participating in its celebration are of little importance to me. I'm more concerned about the "right" understanding of the meaning of Christmas and what it symbolizes.
Christmas is no other thing but the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. His supernatural conception remains a marvel. The Lamb of God came to save everyone from eternal doom. Don't just celebrate Christmas but the reason for the season. As you rejoice, share the good news, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As we are ending a year and closely approaching a new year, one thing is guaranteed, a year is about to become part of history. A demarcation line is ready to be drawn between two different years; the old and the new year. This year and all its events become part of "the past"! Also, the incoming year begins to open up as "the present"! In addition, a new chapter of life is about opening, and a catalog of events is about unfolding. What is called "the future" is about completing a process and taking a new name; the present.
Count your blessings and praise God.
Friends, another 365days will soon start counting.
I pray that 2023 will be a year with a difference in all ways for you. HAPPY 2023
