Advent literally means “coming.” We celebrate Christmas because it was the (first) coming of Jesus. We celebrate advent in the anticipation of the second coming as well. Why celebrate Christmas? We celebrate because:
- Jesus came to bring Joy!
- Jesus came to bring Salvation!
- And Jesus came to bring Peace!
And Jesus is coming again in order to:
- Complete our Joy!
- Culminate our Salvation!
- And Confirm our Peace!
- How can you celebrate with joy this Christmas?
- How can you celebrate your salvation this Christmas?
- How can you generate peace this Christmas?
Dear Jesus, Help me Celebrate Christmas with everything I have and find joy, salvation and peace in You! Amen.
