How to Apply the Reason For Christmas [Luke 2:11 Daily Devotional]

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Luke 2:11

Merry Christmas! Roughly 2,000 years ago, a baby was born to a normal, working class family in an ordinary town that no one had really heard of. No one really knew what kind of change this baby would bring to the world, and we get the benefit of that change now in modern times. That baby would grow up to pay for our sins on a cross, a truly humiliating way to die. On the third day, he would rise from the dead to prove he was God and 40 days later ascend to the right hand of the Father. This is the God we serve, and the birth we celebrate this year.

How to Apply the Reason For Christmas

Simply put, remember why we’re celebrating today. Christmas is an important holiday for families to gather and for gifts to be exchanged, but you know as well as I do that we have an immense amount to be thankful for. Take time to thank God for your family, work, friends, and anything else you can think of today. Then spend some much needed quality time with family and friends.

If you’re lonely this season, please know I’m praying for you. I encourage you to get plugged into a church and truly join into one of the greatest communities we’ve all been blessed with. Allow Christ’s body, the church, to be your family.

Prayer

Jesus, thank you for coming to earth to show me a better way to live. I worship you and you alone. Help me to see the ways you are working in my life so I’m able to give you the proper thanks in each situation. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
