Day 360: Reflection

by John Nelson December. 26, 2010 2910 views

With all the hustle of activities, gift-giving, & gift-receiving of the Day, it's easy for the traditions to overshadow why we celebrate.

And while we celebrate the amazing birth of Jesus, it is not the day to be celebrated most. It's the easiest to celebrate: it's warm & fuzzy & full of hope. But the day we should celebrate most is the day of his second birth: when He died and rose again, destroying death and ushering in a hope of eternal life.

That day is harder to celebrate with warm & fuzziness. It's polarizing to people. But it's why His birth is so significant. It isn't His birth that we celebrate…it's His salvation that the end of His life brought, starting on that silent night.

Merry Christmas.

I was going to use this scripture thought with my Christmas post: "To this end, came I into the world". Thanks for the reminder, John. I'm so proud of you!
