The True Meaning of Christmas

Christmas will soon be upon us! As we enjoy the music, cookies, and everything about Christmas, it is very easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas. So, today I want to share with you a part of Luke chapter 2.

Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

 Our Savior, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, was born in the lowliest place, a stable.  Angels, coming to the unwanted, unpopular shepherds, so that they too could share in the birth of our King.  Jesus didn't just come to save the rich; He also came for the poor and unwanted.  Jesus came to save us, the sinners; a king in Heaven being born into flesh to die for our sins. So when we wake on Christmas Day, before we run downstairs to search for gifts, thank the Lord for sending His only Son for us.  Remember, Jesus is the reason whey we celebrate.
