 Christmas is a special time. It is a family celebration. Good Friday and Eastern Sunday is Celebrated in Church. National days are celebrated with speeches and the ceremonies of Government. But Christmas is glorified in the home because it is the celebration of a Birthday. Christmas means different things to different people. To many Christmas means merely an opportunity to make. Money. Christmas has been commercialized. Many people view with each other in their preparation for the celebration of the occasion. Christmas has become a big business. Pleasure- seeking consumes the time and some try to find a Merry Christmas in what they call entertainment and fun. Instead of imbibing the spirit of Christmas, they choose to imbibe spirits at Christmas. We cannot have a Marry Christmas or a Happy New Year when we have become slaves to the passion and vices that hound us. These things materialism, Money, Artificial Pleasure- are crowing Christ out of Christmas for multitudes of people, and they have no time to consider the massage of, the Baby of Bethlehem. Today we think of that first Christmas almost 2,000 years ago. When the world experienced three phenomena: First- many stars and. Second- A new song in the Air. A world which had lost its song learned to sing again. And third- The good News- The good news that at last a savior had come to save man and women from sin. “His name shall  be called Jesus, for He shall save His people from their Sins”. Jesus was the central theme of that first Christmas. The star, the Song, the Gifts, the Kneeling, the Joy, the Hope, the excitement all were because of Him. God’s stare promised peace to the world if we will believe and trust Him. But having rejected Jesus Christ, the prince of people, we have no peace in the world. Too often our synthetic stars bring only fear, anxiety and even more wars “Unto you to born this day…. A Saviour which is Christ the Lord “says the scripture. Heaven and Earth joined together! God and mankind reconciled. Hope for the hopeless pardon for the quality, forgiveness for the conscious- stricken, peace for this who knew no peace, good news for these who have had nothing but bad news! Can treat sin, no psychiatrist in the world can cure sin. And Christmas is not Christmas without a massage on the death and resurrection of Christ. That is why He born. That was the massage of the first Christmas. The Christmas massage says that God’s grace is greater than our sin. The Christmas massage has not changed after nearly 2,000 years. Christmas still reminds us that God is with us, yes, there is still a start in the sky. In spite of all the pessimism, and cynicism, In spite of all the headlines about murder, assassination, riots, demonstration, and wars, there is still a star in the sky. And Jesus is alive to reconcile us to God.

This Christmas accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord. Give Him the gift that He wants- your hears, your soul, your life. That is the real meaning of Christ.
