The Reason For the Season

The Reason for the Season -- LOVE!


The theme that threads itself throughout the history of man’s relationship with our awesome Creator is love! Man (Adam) was birthed out of Jehovah’s desire to have relationship with someone. That someone would retain a free will and the capability of not only recognizing love but the ability of returning love.

With a spiritual hand, God carved out of the rich deep earth a vessel that He would fill with Himself!  This, the first commitment of Love toward man.

He Points the Way to the Tree of Life!

With all the discussion and debate of whether Christians should decorate a tree or not, we, who have relationship with God, are not phased by the do’s and dont's of rituals.

We find significance in the Star at the top of the tree reminds us of the star that led the wise men to the stable where the Saviour was born. It sits high atop the tree and reminds us of the scripture that says, “If I be lifted up, I’ll draw all men unto me.”

He's The Light of the World!

The lights represent the fact that Jesus is the light of the world. The branches of the tree lift gracefully wide, reminding us “whosoever will let him come!” Christ came that we all might have life, and has it more abundantly. The gifts that sit under the tree reminds us that “… God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16). On the acceptance of the Father’s gift of His Son we gain everlasting life!


A Gift that Keeps on Giving!

 God’s gift of love has made it possible for everyone to give a gift whether you have finances or not! Whether you are near or far! Love is a gift that lasts a lifetime! Understanding this, my family celebrates Christmas throughout the year. With every expression of love we relive the Reason for the Season of Christmas!
