The True Meaning of Christmas

At Christmas, so many things are vying for our attention. In the midst of the celebrating and fun, let's not forget Who came that day so long ago...and why He came. He was the greatest Gift ever given. He was our sacrifice. Our Savior. There is simply no way that we can comprehend the true meaning behind what He did for us. We'll never fully understand the sacrifice He made. Our minds can't grasp that kind of love. How can we not give ourselves in return? 


The True Meaning of Christmas


Jesus Christ was born this day
So many years before
He came a servant to the lost
Though he was Lord of Lords

We celebrate this joyous time
Reflecting on His birth
Not born in a mansion, but a stable
As if He had no worth

He came so He could identify
With the human heart of man
And gave His life as a sacrifice
Offering a better plan

A plan that reconciles us back 
To our loving Father God
Bringing hope and redemption from
Sins ruling iron rod

For this is the only reason that we 
Should celebrate this day
To become focused on anything else
Would take the meaning away

So let's arise with joy in our hearts
And share it with everyone
The meaning of Christmas will always be
The birth of Jesus -- God's son
