My family has a tradition on Christmas Eve of every year – we read the Christmas story from Luke 2. It is a tradition that my parents passed on to me, and which I do now with my wife and two kids. In all the flurry of the Christmas season, I think we do often forget what this holy-day is all about. God became man, dwelt among us, died for our sins, and was resurrected so that we can experience forgiveness and eternal life with God.
I think Linus sums it up well.
Jesus is the reason for the season.
Merry Christmas from the Mayfield’s.
