Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 3 – 9 December 2017
“I wait for the Lord my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope.”
Despite October being my favorite year, Christmas remains my favorite season. I have plenty of reasons to make it one, but this year will be very special.
This year, my Christmas will be different for this will be a time when I will be able to do things in relation to this celebration much earlier. This doesn’t mean our vacation days will be arriving earlier than last year, but it means the hurdles for celebrating one will be out this year. Allowing me to prepare for Christmas earlier and better than ever. As one movie quotes it, “So freeing!”
Believers likewise are excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. First, it symbolizes that The Messiah Himself has come down to be with us. Second, it symbolizes the freedom we have gained from our sinful past because the celebration of Christmas sets in motion the plan for our salvation, and finally, the birth of Jesus Christ also symbolizes the love of God for us. Love that is so powerful that nothing that outpace it.
This season, are you excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior?
Come, Jesus Come!
