Bells are ringing, gifts are being given, family and friends are celebrating, songs are being sung. It is a joyous occasion.
Really, it is, despite whatever disagreements you’ve had over what to get the kids or who’s family to spend more time with.
What? You still don’t believe me? I’m sorry to hear that. I guess you’ll have to try harder next year.
Don’t want to wait until next year? Tired of the Christmas frustrations? Then stop what you are doing for a moment and hear God’s Word on the topic. “The Virgin will bear a Son and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
That infant in diapers in the manger is God himself. He is bigger than any disagreements you will have this Christmas, for He has taken away the world’s sin.
Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
