More than 2,000 years ago, Christ came to this earth; Born of a virgin, born as a baby. God came near to you, so you can come near to Him.
He came to give your life purpose and meaning.
He came to forgive you of your sins and to give you the hope of heaven beyond the grave.
Christmas is not about tinsel or shopping or presents. Christmas is not the gifts under the tree. Christmas is the gift that was given on the tree (the cross of Calvary), where Christ died for our sin and gave us the gift of eternal life. That is the gift He extends. That is what Christmas is all about.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
