For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:11

We have looked at many different figures in the Christmas story.  But the Christmas day and even the whole Christmas season would have no meaning deeper than maybe a nice time of being with family and exchanging gifts with loved ones without the inclusion of one more person.  Me.  If the Christmas story is not personal, then Christmas is just a nice, if not slightly hectic, holiday and a day off of work.  If Jesus is not real to you, then Christmas and the whole Christmas story loses it’s meaning.  But it is real to me.

This verse sums it up to me: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour…”  Unto me.  He came to be born of a virgin in a manger, but He came for me.  He is my Saviour!  And, no matter what else you think of this Christmas season, think of that fact.  Jesus Christ came to and for YOU! 

Merry Christmas!

  2. So it is!

    More than just a holiday indeed.

    I enjoyed this series. Did you consider making this into a book for teens/tweens? It’s a nice way to get the word out.

    May Christ come anew in your heart this Christmas. Your very words speak so much of how you love Him.



  3. Merry Christmas!
