This Christ, who came to die for us. But more than that, Christ who came to LIVE for us.
So, while we joy around the heavily laden table, the pleasures of spending time with family, the giving and recieving of gifts--let us not forget that there is a real reason for this celebration that has nothing to do with food and fun. But with a birth, a live, a death, a resurrection--and eternity.
Merry Christmas, my friends and brethern!!
