Merry Christmas!

I hope that you have a great Christmas!  And I pray that we celebrate and meditate on the greatness of God taking on flesh. A God that loves his people so much that he would come in the form of a baby born in a stable. Here is a video that I shot at a house that features a light show every year. This song really spoke to me. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Question. Or questions. How do you know Jesus was born on December 25th? Did he institute a celebration? Why was a Santa clause and Christmas decorations adopted into the celebration? Why celebrate his coming to the sinful world instead of his death and resurrection which ultimately brought grace?

    • Hey Matilde5,

      Allow me to answer your questions.

      You: “How do you know Jesus was born on December 25th?”

      Me: I don’t.

      You: “Did he institute a celebration?”

      Me: I don’t think so.

      You: “Why was a Santa clause and Christmas decorations adopted into the celebration?”

      Me: I am sure that you could do a Google search to figure out this answer. I believe that Santa Clause stems from the folk tales about Saint Nicholas. Other than that I don’t have any answers for you.

      You: “Why celebrate his coming to the sinful world instead of his death and resurrection which ultimately brought grace?”

      Me: Why do you say that I do not celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection? I believe all these events deserve to be celebrated. God taking on flesh is a monumental moment in history (Christmas). Jesus death is important for the forgiveness of sins (Good Friday). And Jesus’ resurrection is God conquering death (Easter). They are all wonderful and should be celebrated. I am not sure where you are coming from. Maybe you would like to clarify.

      Travis
