What a wonderful time of year!! It is no wonder we want to prepare a feast for Christmas. We have something to celebrate! It is good and right to give and receive gifts as our hearts overflow with thanksgiving and joy at this glorious proclamation. We can begin to understand why someone might become so excited about this CHRIST-mas truth that they give gifts, while at the same time are content with receiving none. That’s how the “Christ-time” spirit can affect us. We can be overwhelmed at the receiving of gifts and overjoyed at the giving of gifts. The reason for this season of celebration is, always has been, and will always be that Jesus came to save his people from their sins. So, enjoy both the giving and receiving of gifts at Christmas, but remember that all our celebrating flows from the simple truth, Jesus was born to save!
Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior - yes, the Messiah, the Lord - has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!” Luke 2:9-11
We at Homeland Realty Group hope that you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends and remember -- Jesus is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!
