It's Christmas Time Once Again
It's Christmas time once again! Most of us received gifts already from our office mates, friends and our families. I believe many of us attended Christmas get-togethers more than once. We also prepared for the costumes that we wore for the Christmas Party. It’s in this time of the year that many people are happy.
All of us, I believe, love gifts, to enjoy them, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But aside from the merry making that we do, let us not forget the true essence of this season: who is Jesus, our God who became man to save us from all our sins and to love us unconditionally. I believe more than anything else this is the reason why we celebrate because on this season we experience a great act of love that the Father gave us. He gave his only son Jesus Christ not to live as a king but to live like normal people, this kind of love is truly admirable.
I am part of a spiritual family for few years but I can say that I am still a work in progress, many times I fail like I don’t want to pray, there are high and low moments. There are times that I love to do mission and there are times that I want to go away. But despite of my imperfections, I believe Jesus wants me to be close to him, He never gives up on me. He always finds ways for me to go back to him. I may not be faithful to Him but He is faithful to me. His love is patient and true.
In this holiday season, aside from attending parties and having fun, let us add time to pray to Jesus, to spend time with him. Acknowledge His importance in our lives. In my case, I admit I still have a lot to learn about Him but one thing is for sure, he knows everything about me and so with all of us. No matter what hardships that we experience let’s strive to hang on to Him and not give up. This Christmas let’s be Jesus to others, that’s the best gift that we can give to one another. Merry Christmas! God bless you all.
