The real meaning of Christmas celebrations.
We must buy our presents and we must have our fun but what exactly should we be celebrating?
'His name shall be Emmanuel – God with us.'
(Matthew 1: 23.)
We should be celebrating the simple truth that God became man in Palestine over 2,000 years ago when two natures, the Divine and the human, united in the womb of a virgin peasant girl who brought to term and then gave birth to the God/man Jesus Christ, and that event we call Christmas.
And Christmas is all about that one wondrous miracle when that which is outside space and time; that which is eternal and uncreated, descended into His own universe and in so doing, entered the human nature He had created that then gave birth to that which we call Christianity: by which we are saved.
Now that is something really worth celebrating this Christmas!
