Why I celebrate Christmas

Recently a friend sent me a summary of a religion that typifies much religious thought these days.

The summary sentence said, “To grow spiritually is to actually become more aware of who you really are.”

As I read this it occurred to me, “Gosh, there’s not much cause for celebration here, because who I really am needs a lot of changing, and that’s why I celebrate Christmas, because it’s the birth of the man who can change who I am!

This season I celebrate the birth of the Son of God, the one who saved me from myself, gave me meaning to live for and a family to live it with, and every day demonstrates grace and love in my life!

I celebrate Jesus!
