It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For many people it truly can be and it should be as we embrace and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Sadly for some people the Christmas season can be a difficult and even a miserable time.  There are some that have experienced loss in many different ways during the Advent and Christmas season.  While many of us Christians are decorating and preparing our homes and lives for the coming of Jesus, it’s impossible for others to see anything positive or good.  Jesus Christ was born for all people and sent to the world through God, our Father and Creator; there are some though that haven’t come to know God and believe and trust in Jesus as their savior, which makes the real reason for Christmas impossible for them to understand.  The real meaning and purpose behind Christmas is the birth of Christ, hence Christ-mass.  Jesus’ birth changed the world and with that many millions of people.  It was the greatest change that has ever happened.  Some change is not easy to grasp or understand, like losing a loved-one or a job, or many other things.  Some people just do not like change at all, but imagine your own life and the world around you without Jesus.  The inspired word of God has remained the same for over 2000 years, although we as people read and re-read it and learn something new each and every time, which is what God intends for us.  God and the words that we learn and what we learn through our experiences are constantly growing and living.  God’s word is alive and is for all of us.  Each one of us interprets God and the word that has been given to us differently.  We are all unique as much as our thoughts and opinions, exactly how God made us, which is a blessing.  But, if we honestly embrace the amazing birth of Jesus and know and call him our Savior, that one thing unites us all together, through all of our differences.  Jesus was sent to earth for all of us to know God and live our lives in a certain way and to bring us together and not to divide us.  May Christmas be a wonderful blessing for you!
