What People Don't Know About Christmas

There are points throughout the Christmas season that I particularly don't like. Primarily when it comes to buying gifts.  I wish I had more money to buy amazing gifts for all the people who are SO amazing to me. But when I do have money, I don't always know what to purchase. I don't know exactly if the person I'm buying for will like it. And maybe you can identify with this feeling. Perhaps you don't know Who to buy for, or how to dress for a Christmas Party. But there is one important truth that there is One important person  that people don't often recognize during this season. 

Christmas is a tangible expression of God's great love to us. A love SO Great that it led Him to send His Son to be Our Savior! Yet most of the world does not recognize the love of God or the meaning of Christmas. This is not true for just our day.  It was true when Jesus was on earth as well. When the wise men came to Jerusalem looking for the place where Jesus had been born, the religious leaders knew exactly where to send them - To Bethlehem. Yet though they knew this, They showed no interest in going to see Jesus themselves. 

Matthew 2: 1-5
King James Version (KJV) -  "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, {2} Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. {3} When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. {4} And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. {5} And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,"

The world does not recognize the gift of God's love. They're eyes are blinded to all things Spiritual since the world is lost. Even worse, the very people to whom Christ came for, rejected Him. So many people today are repeating that tragic error. Though they may celebrate Christmas, they do not know the Christ of Christmas. As Christians we can be a light to guide other to Christ. What a wonderful time to bring up Christ's name - At Christmas! The whole reason for Christmas is celebrating Christ's Birth. Take time this Christmas to introduce someone to Christ! They need to know what Christmas is all about and the Bible says...

Matthew 16:15
King James Version (KJV) - "...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Christ is what People don't know about Christmas. 
Christmas Isn't Christmas 'till it happens in your heart.
And we need to go and tell others about Him. Let's be the Light we were called to be.
