What Christmas Means to me....
We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first ... 1John 4:19 The Message
Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage. Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave, taking on the likeness of men. And when He had come as a man in His external form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death—even to death on a cross ...Phillip. 2:5-8, HCSB
Only true Love would sacrifice itself for another, there would be no reason to celebrate Christmas without the Resurrection. Even if the world can't or won't acknowledge it, even when they deny and defame they can not stop Love, oh yes I know all about the pagan roots of this particular day on the calendar and the fact that Christ was most likely born sometime in Sept/Oct during Succot but nevertheless .. This is what Christmas means to me and what I have tried to teach my children...... Read other's thought on what Christmas means to them here by scrolling to comments and clicking on the links!
