As we enter into the Christmas season, it’s easy to make it all about us. Your mom and grandma have probably both asked you for your Christmas lists. And you’ve been thinking it through and trying to decide what exactly it is that you want for Christmas.
Getting gifts is certainly a fun part of the Christmas season. However, it can be really easy to forget what Christmas is really all about. It’s not about the ugly sweater contests, the fun games at your youth group, or getting a few weeks off of school. Christmas is about Jesus.
It’s about how humanity needed a savior. That savior was Jesus. Through Jesus, we can now experience peace with God.
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 (NLT)
So regardless of what you get this Christmas, make sure you take some time to think about the greatest gift you’ve gotten, which is Jesus. Realize that He truly is what Christmas is all about. Take time to think about Him
