The reason Christ came to earth was to set us free.
The reason God wants us to serve Him is because Christ died for us.
The reason Christ died for us is because God loves us so much that he was willing to let his one and only son die so we might be forgiven.
This Christmas, as well as spending time with friends and family and exchanging presents, please take some time to say thank you to God for giving us Christ!
I pray you may experience the joy that only a relationship with Christ can bring you this Christmas.
