On this Holy Night, the night before Christmas, Christmas Eve I will abstain from political attacks or partisan bickering long enough to wish everyone out there a safe, happy, blessed Christmas.
Christmas is a time to spend with family and to enjoy all the wonderful gifts we have been endowed by God with. It is a celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through God’s divine and overarching love, He sent His only begotten Son to a tiny town called Bethlehem to be born as a babe to the Virgin Mary. This Child would be called the Son of the Most High and The Prince of Peace. He was born that, in time, He would take the punishment for humanity’s sins on the cross of Calvary. His birth indicates with what manner we are supposed to give.
I know it is politically incorrect to talk about Christmas and I’m supposed to talk about the ‘holiday season’. While I certainly recognize that there are other holidays out there that compete with Christmas for celebratory time, no other holiday can compete with the sheer importance for every man, woman and child’s immortal soul. We can all celebrate this season with joyful hearts and an assurance that we will meet the reason for the season in heaven. All we need to do is ask Him to come into our hearts and become Lord of our lives and our Savior. All we need to say is “Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. I’ve sinned against You and I want You to come into my heart and cleanse me of all my sins. I want to serve You. I thank You for dying for my sins on Calvary. I want to become a new creation through Your blood. In Your name I pray, Amen.”
If you’ve said that prayer, you can rest assured that God has listened and you have everlasting life in heaven waiting for you when you die. That is what Christmas is all about.

Christmas is a joyous season and I wish everyone a blessed, Merry Christmas.
