For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
It's been a long time since I've written a Quiet Time passage, please forgive me for that. I am still busy but I think this would be a great reminder for everyone of the coming season.
In coming days, people will merry and people will rejoice as they celebrate Christmas Season. Back in the Philippines, you'll hear joyous Christmas carols all over the radio night and day while at night you'll hear children singing Christmas carols in exchange for a few bucks. People conduct Christmas parties and exchange gifts, and other events -all pertaining to Christmas. But do we really know what Christmas is?
In your heart, what is Christmas?
- it is a time of giving.
- it is a time for forgiving.
- it is the birth of our Savior.
These are just a few answers that you'll hear if you ask people what or why they celebrate Christmas. I just want to share my Christmas or what it means to me.
One day, a child was born and his name is Jesus Christ. He offered a gift of salvation to everyone but not everyone accepted that gift. I accepted Him as my personal savior and he gave me a great gift. I am very grateful of His gift. I will rejoice and be glad in it! For He is my savior, my counselor, my everlasting Father and my mighty God.
Although God did not allow us to know the exact date of Jesus Christ's birth, I will celebrate the birth of the one who has given me a great gift, the one who gave us all great hope. I can celebrate it anytime and anywhere, but this time I will celebrate it with great joy in my heart because I know this time, I am not alone celebrating such a wonderful day.
How about you? What is the meaning of Christmas to you?
God bless us all. "Maligayang Pasko sa inyong lahat."
