Life is all about perspective. What is perspective?
Perspective-/pərˈspektiv/ a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
There are so many perspectives when it comes to Christmas. Some celebrate the birth of Christ, some only the Holiday Season, and others don’t celebrate at all. Whatever you view may, or may not be is predicated to your perspective.
What is God’s perspective of Christmas?
The Birth of Christ was always meant for you, and your salvation!
Luke 2:8-14 (NLT)
8 That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. 9 Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,14 “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
We celebrate Christmas to remember you are loved by God the Father.
John 3:16-17 (NLT)
16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
Who is the most valuable person in your life?
We celebrate Christmas to remember you are valued by God the Son, Jesus Christ.
Philippians 2:6-11 (NLT)
6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form,8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.9 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
We celebrate Christmas to remember you are not alone. You have an Advocate God, the Holy Spirit.
John 14:23-27 (NLT)
