This Sunday, Christmas Day, will mark the anniversary of the day ‘The Light of the World,’ the Lord Jesus Christ, was born more than 2,000 years ago. No other day in history has been so significant, so important, so life-changing and world-changing as Christmas Day, the day Christ was born, the day He began to change everything so that the world would never be again as it had been before. His birth marks the greatest turning point in human history and in humanity’s relationship — both collectively and individually — with God. Within 33 years of that first Christmas Day and the miracle of Christ’s birth, the first Easter would witness the even greater miracle of His resurrection, of His triumph over death, hell, and the grave. The 33 years that began on the first Christmas and came, not to an ending, but instead to a new and even greater continuation of the life and ministry of Christ, changed all things forever. This Christmas Day, think about the true meaning of Christmas, a meaning that transcends all others. Think on that true meaning, embrace it and receive the greatest Christmas gift of all: Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and eternal life with Him.
