Christmas Eve - A time to remember a couple of very important things!

      It's Christmas Eve! I can't believe it ! Time has flown by! Around Christmas time, it can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of shopping, and cooking, and writing christmas cards, that we forgot the most important part of Christmas! ( no it's not getting gifts!)

       Although the Bible doesn't tell us the exact date that Jesus was born, we celebrate it on December 25 every year. God sent his one and only Son to be born in this horrid , sinful  world, to die for us, so we could have eternal life. God sent His Son to be the perfect example for us.

      Christmas isn't about getting gifts, but it can be a good time to show others how much we love them by giving them a gift they can use and enjoy. It's not the gift that matters, it's the thought that the person put into it. It is more blessed to give than to  receive.

     Acts 20:35 says : " I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive"

     Remember all these things this Christmas as you enjoy spending time with your loved ones. Remember God's Gift to us. Merry Christmas to all!
