What Is The True Meaning Of Christmas? by Nobody: 9:25am On Dec 24, 2014
The true meaning of Christmas is love. John
3:16-17 says, "For God so loved the world that he
gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in
him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did
not send his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but to save the world through him." The true
meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this
incredible act of love.
The real Christmas story is the story of God's
becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus
Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He
loves us! Why was Christmas necessary? Because we
needed a Savior! Why does God love us so much?
Because He is love itself ( 1 John 4:cool. Why do we
celebrate Christmas each year? Out of gratitude for
what God did for us, we remember His birth by giving
each other gifts, worshipping Him, and being
especially conscious of the poor and less fortunate.
The true meaning of Christmas is love. God loved His
own and provided a way—the only Way—for us to
spend eternity with Him. He gave His only Son to take
our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full,
and we are free from condemnation when we accept
that free gift of love. "But God demonstrated His own
love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ
died for us" ( Romans 5:cool.
