It REALLY Happened!
A video posted on Facebook caught my attention. It featured a man taking his Christmas tree to be recycled. The commentary went something like this:
Christmas is over, all the family and friends have gone home, the food is eaten, the gifts opened, the special worship services and concerts over, and the decorations have been put away. It’s like Christmas never happened … but, thanks be to our Lord and Savior, Christmas REALLY happened! Our Savior Jesus was born, lived, and died in our stead for our sins. He was raised from the dead conquering sin, death, and the power of Satan - assuring us of eternal life in Christ. It REALLY happened. And it changed everything!
This coming Wednesday the season of Lent begins. This is a time to concentrate on fundamental values and priorities, a time to draw closer to the Christ of Christmas and see that it is He who gives it all for you. The celebration of Christmas may well be over for you, but Christmas is real, Christ is real, and He lives for and loves you!
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord (Luke 2:11).
