The Purpose of Christmas

Scripture

“And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.”

John 17:3 NLT

 

Observation

Time felt faster this year. Christmas is already here, and this verse reminds me of the purpose of Christmas. Christmas is not about the date of December 25th (because it isn’t the real date of Jesus birth). God sent Jesus to earth with the purpose to build the way of reconnection to God. Christmas is the celebration of the best present I could ever receive: the way to have eternal life.

 

Application

I don’t have to wait for Christmas to remember the biggest act of love that God has done for me and the best present He gave to the world. I need to remember this every day.

 

Prayer

Father, thank you for showing me the way to have eternal life. Please, help me to always remember the best present you gave to this world: Jesus Christ. Help me to get to know you even more. In Jesus name I pray.
