The Reason for the Season

In my neck of the world, it is evening on Christmas Day, 2011. Sure, presents were part of the celebration, and great food also was a major part of the day.  But  the celebration of the Birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ made it special. I think many of the readers of True Purpose understand this, but take a moment to decide what really makes this day special. Luke, Chapter 2 really shows me that even though the circumstances surrounding the birth of Christ were not ideal, Peace on Earth was made posible for the first time since the Fall of Mankind. How? Because God in the flesh arrived. Our relationship with our Father would ultimately be restored because of the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf. We may not have the same struggles as Mary and Joesph did on the birthday of Jesus, but they were in the middle of God’s purpose for their lives. If we listen to what God is telling us though his Word, Prayer, and by just doing what we need to do to serve him, we will  be where God wants us. The road we travel today will one day lead to one that is paved with gold.
