Bi-lingual Evangelical Church in Fuente Alamo
By the time this article is published we will be within a few weeks of celebrating Christmas. If you’re not yet a Christian, you may be thinking “What does this bloke know about celebrating? Isn’t he all bound up by religious rules and regulations? He doesn’t know how to go out and enjoy himself. He doesn’t know how to have fun.”
Don’t fool yourself. Christians know how to have fun.
If you’re not a Christian, why do you celebrate Christmas? Is it just another excuse to party, like so many other occasions throughout the year? If so, you are missing out on something very special. You are missing out on the most important thing in the history of mankind since creation itself. You are missing out on celebrating the birth of Jesus, the Son Of God, born to live amongst us as a man.
We know that historically December 25th may not be the date of Jesus’ birth, but it is a day to remember God’s greatest gift to mankind, but any gift is of no use unless someone receives it. Are you going to receive God’s gift?
Why do we as Christians celebrate Christmas?
The birth of Jesus was good news for the whole of mankind and don’t we always enjoy celebrating good news!
We celebrate by giving and receiving gifts as we remember the precious gift that the Lord gave to us. He gave us His son.
We celebrate by lighting candles and coloured lights to acknowledge that the “Light of the world had arrived on earth.”
We celebrate with carols and music because they help us to express our joy, knowing that God loves us so much that He sent His only son to live on earth with us and, ultimately, to die for us.
Sure you may have good time over Christmas, but how long will it last?
Think about the real meaning of Christmas.
Think about what Jesus did for you.
That’s a real reason to celebrate.
Why don’t you join us one Sunday morning and find out more about Jesus? You can find joy that won’t just last for a couple of days. It will last for ever.
Our Sunday morning services start at 11.30am at Calle Espinar 13, Fuente Alamo.
