A Merry Christmas Because of a Happy Easter!

As we come upon Christmas Day, it is important that we remember that we celebrate the birth of Jesus because we can celebrate His death and His resurrection. Without His death on the cross, we would still be dead in our sins, and without His resurrection, we would not have victory over the grave and the gift of eternal life in Heaven. Therefore, the celebration of Jesus’ birth is dependent upon His purpose for coming to the earth- to seek and save the lost.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very naturea God,

did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,

but made himself nothing,

taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

he humbled himself

and became obedient to death—

even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

and gave him the name that is above every name,

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:5-11

So as we wish one another “Merry Christmas”, let us remind ourselves of a “Happy Easter” to come!
