A few more days and it is here.  Christmas!!!!  Many families and countries have their own traditions and ways that they celebrate the birth of Jesus.  To some it is just a day to give presents and enjoy family.  That is part of it, but it started as a celebration of God coming to earth, being born of a virgin, taking on human form as Jesus and living a sinless life.  This was needed so He could bear the sins of the world, mine and yours.

    When our children are born we celebrate their birth and then each year with a party but we also remember them throughout the year and love them every day.  Why not do the same for Jesus?  Yes, celebrate at this time of year, but continue to remember and love Him throughout the year.  He certainly deserves it.

    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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  (Isaiah 9:6, KJV)
