Why Christmas Matters. Or Does It?

Why Christmas Matters. Or Does It?

Why Christmas matter. Or does it?What do you think? Does Christmas matter? Does it really matter that Jesus was born? Let’s see. It’s true that whenever a baby is born, it changes the lives of the parents. But one baby changed the whole history and the future of the humankind. That’s why Christmas matters, Jesus changed everything.

The miracle of Christmas is earth-chattering.
The wonder of Christmas is life-changing.

The Holy Night indeed changed the course of history. Before Jesus we did not have any hope for the future. But in Jesus God showed his amazing love towards us. In Jesus God provided us the way back to him. In Jesus God came to live among us. He moved into our neighborhood. That’s why Christmas matters.

The Word became flesh
   and made his home among us.
We have seen his glory,
   glory like that of a father’s only son,
      full of grace and truth.
(John 1:14, CEB)

God’s salvation plan is holy, amazing, and majestic. It changed everything. And it still changes everything. The same Holy Spirit that was part of creating the world and Jesus is now ready to change our lives. God is ready to move into our neighborhood. That’s why Christmas matters. It changes everything in us if we allow it.

Jesus is ready to be born in our hearts. How do we respond? How about “Come, Lord Jesus! Change everything according to your will!”?

Gracious God,
Come and change everything
according to your will.
We praise you and we adore you.
You are holy, holy, holy!
We praise you and we adore you.
Hallelujah!
Thank you for Jesus!
Thank you for finding us,
loving us, and saving us!
In Jesus’ precious name,
Amen
