I am sure that I am not the only one who has memories of Christmas. Our lives are filled with memories, and at the end of each year we reflect on the year and the life that has been. For many of us it is a season of joy, but for some it can be a painful time. That joy or sadness seems to be revolved around the fact that if we get to spend our holiday with or without our loved ones. Christmas is indeed a time to reflect and consider what is important to us. What would our season be without our loved ones?

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isa. 9:6

Why would anything matter without Jesus? Family, friends, holidays wouldn’t have any purpose without the One who made all joy possible. We live in a world that was not meant to be, awaiting a home that was made for us. We celebrate life and family, but most of all we celebrate the birth of a risen Lord. In the vastness of time, there is one singular moment that defined the universe. Jesus, Immanuel. God with us. Let that sink it. Let it go deep into your soul. Our Creator came has a human, not only that, He came as an infant baby. My heart can not understand what was done for humanity to be saved. Christmas as we celebrate it, pales in comparison to what really happened over 2000 years ago. Let that moment not be lost to any of us these season. Jesus is truly the reason for the season. Merry Christmas my church family, may our Lord grace you and your family in this holiday time.

Connected to the vine, 
Pastor Danny
