The Christmas Rush

It is all biz at the moment. I am trying to get my work up to date so that I can get away for a brief break before Christmas (my wife has a special birthday this year!!). I hope to go to a Carol Concert and do some Christmas shopping and one of a hundred things that we are all expected to do at this time of the year. Why all the pressure? Why spend the money? What is this all about?

I actually quite enjoy Christmas when I get everything done and have the time to relax. It is, however, easy to forget what Christmas is really about. It is not about the turkey, the telly or the trials of seeing Auntie Nel again. It is not about the pressies, the pounds or the problems of getting the family back together for one meal in the year.

IT IS ABOUT the fact that God sent his Son, Jesus, to be the Saviour of the world. God created us, but we made our choices and have disobeyed his instructions. This has brought untold harm to the human race. Disease, disaster, personal heartbreak, disappointment, death, so the list goes on. 
  • The good news is that 'Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners' (The Bible). 
  • The fact is that 'The Father (God) sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world' (The Bible).
  • The question is ...What will you do with Jesus?
Have a very Happy Christmas when it comes, and if you survive the rush!!
