WHY DO WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS?

Welcome to purposeful living today. I wish you our Esteemed Reader a Happy Christmas, may the Christ of Christmas be born anew in your heart by the Holy Spirit.

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."



What is Christmas about?

When the purpose of a thing is not known abuse is inevitable. Do you know the purpose of Christmas?

Ask a child this question, you will have a reply like having new set of clothes on Christmas day, eating delicious rice and Chicken that they can't eat on a normal day at home. Going to visit Uncle and Aunty and coming back with blessings on their pockets, going to fun places...

Ask a youth this question, you will have a response like this, it is a time to hang out with my friends, going to a party, going to the cinemas, having dates, eating, drinking, going to fun places...

Ask a Mother this question and she will tell you it is time to cook the best meal and share with neighbours.

Ask a Father this question and He will  tell you that it is a day he will wish to come and go because of the financial responsibility he has to take care of in the family.

Everyone will give you a different opinion about Christmas, this is why some people can celebrate Christmas even in Immorality.

So what is Christmas about?
It is not just about eating, drinking and having fun only.

Have we lost the meaning of Christmas? This is why in the name of Christmas atrocities are being committed, some families are torn apart, young ladies get pregnant, guy get drunk and lose their lives to car accident, some engage in acts that the repercussions will be a life time of had I known.

Christmas is about a person and that is JESUS CHRIST. It is about the birth of Jesus Christ alone any other thing is an aberration of the original plan which is master minded by the devil. He knows how to change the heart of people away from the truth.


Why do we celebrate Christmas? 

We celebrate in thanksgiving to God for sending Jesus Christ to Redeem us...

We celebrate Christmas because we remembered how sinful and helpless we were, we knew how without Jesus we will die and  go to hell.

We know that without Jesus coming to the world we will not be empowered to please the Father.

We know how many times we have tried to overcome sin by ourselves but we could not.

We remember how we were under the oppression of the devil because of sin...

Yes! We remember while we were still in Egypt ( darkness) that he came and brought us into His marvelous light as He is the light.

Yes, we celebrate Christ coming in the flesh which has made us to be Sons of God and we are empowered to live and fellowship with the Father.


He came to give us Victory over sin and death

"The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)" John 10:10.


My dear, It is great to celebrate Christmas but there is always something missing in our celebration after we have  enjoyed ourselves.

This is spending time to meditate on the very reason for the season which is no other but Jesus Christ. Spend time to behold Jesus in the word, the more we behold Jesus the more we conform to His image.

Friend, as you are celebrating, eating and drinking, how is your relationship with Jesus Christ?

Do you have an intimate relationship with him?

Are you living for Him?

Did you know how much he loves you that God came in human form so you can walk in the light?

Today we are celebrating the Jesus whose birth brought us Salvation and the power to live as God's ambassadors on earth. 

He came that you may have life, do you have that life?


Today is that day to cry to God so that Christ can be formed in you anew by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a day that reminds us of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

It is a day to pray for revival of your passion for the things of the kingdom, lost gifts and fire.
It is a day to pray for lost souls.
It is a day to pray for a fresh anointing to be used by God.

If He comes today for you, where will you spend your eternity?

You have been living in sin and live as though you own yourself, surrender your life to Jesus Christ. He loves you very much that he doesn't want you to die in sin and go to hell.  This is why he left his throne for you
Today is all about Jesus Christ nothing else...
Please spend time in God's Presence today.
Again we wish you an encounter with the Christ of the season as you celebrate.



If you have not made Jesus Christ who loves you dearly as your Lord and personal saviour you will struggle living in sexual immorality.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
