The Christmas season celebrations are upon us. The first five letters in Christmas spell Christ: that’s what Christmas is truly about — the birth of Christ.

The Bible tells us: “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son” — Jesus Christ. Prophets and angels foretold of his arrival; shepherds bowed to the babe in the manger; people destined for heaven have been bowing ever since.

May everyone’s Christmas be filled with the unspeakable joy of knowing Jesus Christ, savior of the world and prince of peace. He is the reason for the season.
