Letter: Celebrate true spirt of Christmas
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
I sometimes wonder if we remember why Christmas is celebrated. Several thousand years ago, God came to Earth as a baby to live an exemplary life as a man and to die for all sinners. (There have been no sinless human beings). He, Christ Jesus, is the only perfect being who lived on Earth.
He was born to bring all the world salvation. He came to die because of our sins, rose from the grave and now lives in heaven. If we believe in him, we can spend eternity in heaven with him and not spend eternity in hell. Let's remember that and, though we love all the Christmas blitz, let's not forget that because of him we have a Christmas to celebrate. Let's celebrate with him in mind.
