Why Christmas?

Your family like mine is in the midst of the Christmas swirl.  Gatherings, travel, big meals, traditions, figuring out what to get those folks for whom it is so hard to get good gifts…  Our family is growing each year bigger than the last, with new spouses and grandchildren.  The mantle is becoming crowded with stockings…  That is a great thing.  Oh and don’t forget all of the sappy Christmas movies that are on right now…  Central to which you probably can’t wait for the 24 hours of “A Christmas Story.”
This Christmas we need to remember why?  Thoughts at DTTB.

In the midst of all of this we sometimes need to remember why.  This is a bit more than a celebration of a birth.  1 Peter 3:18 succinctly reminds us what this is all about.  Christ was born as a sacrifice for our sins.  That was His purpose.  That is why He came.  Like Mary we should invest some time in the next days pondering these things in our hearts.
