It’s that time of the year when all the Christmas songs come out – including all the usual cheesy ones, designed to distract us from the real reason we celebrate it.
I love this song for the truth behind it.
Christmas isn’t about us, or the kids, or family and friends getting together, snow, mistletoe, or presents. That’s the world’s version. All these things are good in and of themselves, but don’t define the reason for the season.
Christmas is about the Saviour coming to us.
But Jesus didn’t just come so that we could ooh and aah at a pretty baby, with angels, shepherds, and wise men, in a stable. He didn’t just live a good moral life to set an example for us to follow.
Christmas is about Christ coming to earth to save us. He lived a perfect sinless life, and sacrificed Himself so that He could cleanse our sin-infested lives, and spend eternity with God through faith in Him!
Ponder this, as you read the words of the song.
