12 Days Til Christmas

13 December 2017

It is officially 12 days until one of the biggest celebrations of the year, Christmas Day. It is also for some, one of the most expensive seasons of the year. Businesses are brimming with overstock eager to make their whole years worth of earnings to the public in one month alone. Christmas goods began popping up back in September in the UK. Despite all the shopping glitz and glam, what is Christmas all about?

You see a long long time ago there was a young maiden named Mary betrothed to a man named David. The angel Gabriel had told her God has chosen her to be the vessel whom our King would be born into the world to save us.

Jesus came down from heaven born in a manger and was slain for our sins. Not just the sins people take the most notice of. Not just the sins the secular world focuses its questions to Christians on. All sins. He sweated blood as he prayed for us. He endured for us. He died for us. So that He could save us from our sins and reunite us back to the Father. 

I encourage you to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. 

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
