A Deeper Meaning

How do you explain the true meaning of Christmas? There are so many things that we associate with Christmas: families reunited together, exchanging gifts, singing of Christmas carols, bright lights and Christmas trees.

Now we do not want to put these things down, but beneath all of the tinsel and hustle and bustle, which we usually associate with Christmas. This is the deeper meaning…

“Immanuel–God with us.”

God’s invitation to all people to eternal life through His only Begotten Son and his death on the cross for our sins.

How do we explain the meaning of Christmas to someone who does not know Jesus? “God, by sending his only Begotten Son into the world to die on Calvary’s cross has preapproved some things in our lives. Our salvation is preapproved. For God demonstrated His own love toward us that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Our eternal home is preapproved and paid for.”

Christmas means different things at different times in our lives, and as we grow older, Christmas can be a time to renew and strengthen our inner beings — our soul.

Today, let us open our hearts and souls to his Holy Spirit that we may start to experience his blessing.

Raymond and Eloise Teague—1992

Lord, teach me to live as if You were with me every moment of every day.
Holy Spirit reveal Your presence to me in a new way today.
Embolden me to share Your invitation of life with those who have not heard.
