This time of year, Christians celebrate the coming to Earth of a savior - Jesus Christ, our Lord.
We are only a few days away from Christmas Day. I have to admit a couple of things to you. I love the Christmas season, and everything about it. Even as I think about the empty chairs and dinner table, and still am enamored by the lights, trees, decorations, music and pageantry of it all.
What gift are you looking for this year? Which one would be the greatest ever? Would it be a new car, a house or maybe a trip to some exotic place?

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I remember receiving a phone call from my mom many years ago. It was sometime in August, just before school was to start. We were about three minutes into the conversation when she said to me in a very excited tone, "I've finished my Christmas shopping!"
The Bible tells us many things about Jesus.
