During the Christmas season, we often hear the phrase “Christ is the reason for the season” to reset our focus on Jesus Christ, the Creator who became a creature, instead of the commercialization and festivities that usually happen in the month of December. And there is no doubt that without Christ, there would be no Christmas, but do you know what, according to the Holy Bible, is the reason for this season? While the answer to this question is short, it is also very personal. The reason for this season is “You” – For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11).
Points to ponder:
You are the reason that Christ the Lord, who is from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 90:2) was born. ‘You’ are the reason for this season. Jesus came for you. Have you believed in him and accepted him as your Lord and Savior? Think about it … Jesus came for ‘YOU’.
Luke 2:11 (KJV)
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
