This week brings one of the most special days in the Christian calendar – but what is all really about?
At this time of year we concentrate on presents – however it should not be the gifts that we give to each other that we celebrate, but the meaning behind them.
It is all about the amazing gift that was given to all of us over two thousand years ago.
The greatest gift we will receive this year is not the new bike, the food or even the friends we share them with – it is the gift of forgiveness and therefore eternal life.
The true gift of Christmas is Jesus –
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Have a great time this Christmas and as you enjoy the festive season try to stop occasionally and reflect on the true meaning.
Happy Christmas from all at In2venture
