What is Christmas really about? Most Christians would agree that it’s about Jesus, not just giving gifts and going to parties. But why are we celebrating Jesus? Because God gave the most perfect gift ever – His Son, who would give us the opportunity to be joined with God. Peace and goodwill are important, but Christmas is more than that – it’s about salvation and eternal life.
If we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would be the words: ‘God with us.’ We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!

The more you give, the more comes back to you, because God is the greatest giver in the universe, and He won’t let you outgive Him. Go ahead and try. See what happens.
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
