Why I Celebrate Christmas

Hey everyone,

As we all know, the Christmas season is here.

Parties; family get-togethers; shopping and wrapping gifts; busy stores; cooking and baking; cleaning; eating; Christmas shows, movies, and specials on TV; decorating the house; special events going on at church; Christmas music playing everywhere; caroling; traveling; giving and helping needy families.

As you have noticed, a lot is going on this time of year.

It made me realize something.

Why am I celebrating a holiday that is stressful and chaotic?

To me, I do it to honor the birth of Jesus.

He is the one that God sent from Heaven to live a sinless life to die on the cross and rise on the third day, so that I can have eternal life with God.

Jesus paid for my sins (that I could not do on my own).

I celebrate Christmas to appreciate what Jesus has done in my life and thank God for his birth.

It’s not about presents, get-togethers, and decorations.

This time is meant to honor what God and Jesus did for me.

I didn’t deserve to have eternal life with God.

But God, thought me worthy of it through his son Jesus.

I have to remember that throughout the season or I won’t be appreciative of this holiday.

Please let me know what you think about Christmas.

Thank You and God Bless You,

Millennial Buddy
