Summary: If you want to have a meaningful Christmas, make room for Jesus Christ in your life.
St. Luke 2:1-7
Topic: Make room for Jesus
During this Christmas season, most of you have already had your house decorated with all the beautiful Christmas lights, and Christmas decorations.
Most of you have had your Christmas tree decorated ever so pretty, and have so many Christmas presents put under the Christmas tree.But unless you have had made room for Jesus Christ for this holiday season, your Christmas will be incomplete.
Most of you may have already brought the most finest Christmas gifts for your loved ones for Christmas Day. Some of you have been singing and playing all the well-known Christmas songs. But still, you cannot have a true Christmas unless you have made room for Jesus Christ.
Some of you may have already gone to many Christmas parties, and have already ate a lot of Christmas cookies, Christmas cake, and have drank all the egg-nog as you want. But still, you cannot have true a Christmas unless you have made room for Jesus Christ
Some of you may have already kissed your wife, husband, girlfriend, or boyfriend under the mistle toe, and have had warm yourselves by the fireplace. But still, you cannot have true Christmas unless have Jesus Christ.
Some of you may have plans to travel far, and, wide, or near during this Christmas season to be with your relatives, friends and love ones. You may invited all of your family, friends, and love ones over to your house for a Christmas dinner, and worn all the red, white, and green clothing that you can find. But still you cannot have true Christmas unless you have JESUS CHRIST
Now, there is nothing wrong with decorating your house with all the pretty lights and all the pretty decorations for the Christmas holiday season. There is nothing wrong with decorating your Christmas tree so pretty for the Christmas holidays. There is nothing wrong with buying and receiving gifts, or singing the Christmas songs, or going to Christmas parties, eating and drinking the Christmas goodies, kissing your wife or husband under the mistle tree, inviting people over to your house for Christmas dinner or traveling to see family and friends during the Christmas holidays. No, there is nothing wrong with doing some of these things that I just mentioned that you could do during this Christmas holiday season. But your Christmas would be so ever incomplete if you do not make room for Jesus Christ.
You see, Jesus Christ should be the focal point of our Christmas celebrations, and if Jesus Christ is the focal point of our Christmas celebrations, then there just some things that you would not do in our Christmas celebrations such a getting drunk or getting high, stealing and robbing other people, being greedy or selfish, cussing people out just because you did not get what you wanted for Christmas. Rather, if Jesus Christ is the focal point of our Christmas celebration, then we should show love, kindness, care, gentleness, peace, be in harmony with one another, sharing with one another, and praise God for His Son Jesus Christ because He is the reason for the season.
Now the question is: why should Jesus Christ be the focal point of our Christmas celebration? Why should we make room for Him during this holiday season.
The reason why Jesus Christ should be the focal point of our Christmas celebration is because during this holiday season and on December 25th is the time that we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Now there are some people who will try to argue and debate with you about the birthdate of Jesus Christ saying that he was not born on December 25th. But the importance is not in knowing if Jesus was born on December 25th or not, but it the importance is in knowing and believing that He was born. You see, over 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was born in a city called Bethlehem. When He was born, he was born not in a hospital like most of us, but He was born in a stable, in a manger, where all the animals slept because the scripture says that there was no room for them (Mary, Joseph, and newborn baby Jesus) in the inn.
But what makes Jesus birth so special is that He was born in virgin birth of a virgin woman by the power of the Holy Ghost. That is, Jesus Christ birth was not an act of Joseph and Mary having any type of sexual relations with each other. But rather it was the act of the Holy Ghost coming upon Mary and overshadowing her, and she became pregnant with the Son of God without having any sexual relations with any man. But when the Holy Spirit came upon Mary to impregnate her with Jesus, this was also an act of God the Father sending his Son Jesus Christ to save the world from their sins. That is, God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world through the virgin birth of a virgin woman Mary by the power of the Holy Ghost.
