Experiencing Christmas

Christmas is Christ born for you that He might be born in you. When the angels announced to the shepherds that for you is born this day in the city of David, a child who is the Savior, Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11), they were declaring to all mankind (not just the shepherds) that Christ was born for you a Savior. Unless Christmas is personalized, the understanding of the birth of Christ will only be an impersonal, historical event that is celebrated once a year. The message of Christmas is the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Christmas is Christ born for you that He might be born in you. (John 3:1-6)

Christmas is a personal experience. Because of Christmas, you have been liberated to experience Life. You are now free to be the man or woman God uniquely created you to be. Christ as Savior for you, means He has made you safe from the dysfunction of sin, as by faith you allow Him to function dynamically as your life.

Christmas was meant to be experienced not just celebrated. Christmas comes alive in your heart only when the divine life of Christ, who was born for you, that He might be born in you, is allowed to live through you. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was there that first Christmas morning and she knew how to experience Christmas. "Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart." (Luke 2:19)

You see, Christmas is meant for the heart. Hold Christmas dearly, deep within your heart and you will find the reality of Christmas being birthed through you for others, bringing a truly Merry Christmas!
