God acts to bring Himself glory

During the birth of Jesus Christ, an angel appeared to the shepherds and said, "Glory to God in the highest." This meant that God the Father would get glory, honor and praise through the birth of his Son.

God is always with us

The Christmas season is one of the most celebrated times of the year. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the commercialism of Christmas is advertised. Jesus is the real meaning of Christmas and he is the reason for the season. This is a time when we celebrate Christ our Savior's birth.

This season should be peaceful

There are many words people often use to describe the Christmas season, including busy, hectic, frustrating and expensive. That's the way it is for many American families. So many people say they are glad when the season ends.

God sent His Son, so follow Him

It seems more people think about Jesus during this time of year than at other times. It may be the holiday season causes people to think of home and family, and that triggers a remembrance of families who tried to follow God all the time.

God gave ultimate gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts, especially during the Christmas season. Many people will go into debt buying gifts to give to their kids, families and friends. Often times in the hype of gift giving we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Loving God means loving those we see each day

I often wonder how someone can say they love the Lord but they fail to love those around them. Christianity is all about love. If one professes to be a child of God, then the love of God should dwell within that person.

Give and it will come back to you

Society consistently teaches us to take all we can, build a personal kingdom and look out for ourselves. You may have heard of "gold diggers," women who take advantage of men to receive material gain, or "hustlers," people who will do whatever it takes - legal or illegal - to make sure they have what they want. But the Bible encourages God's people to have a different mindset. We are taught to be givers.
