Focus and re-focus on Jesus and His teachings, His ways, His mission.
Though we might already do this daily, this is the day that has been chosen in the west – so let us place all of our focus on He that was born for us.
Yes, the giving of gifts and the mass intake of food makes this day special for many of us but Jesus is the reason for the season.
Jesus is the ultimate gift.
He was given to us through love.
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,KJV).
On this earth, we don’t have to be in pieces. We can be at peace.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).
Through Him we are delivered.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).
