1) The number one reason why Jesus is the reason for the season is that He is the ultimate gift to the world. – Romans 5:15 {Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:}

2) Jesus love inspires people to be extra kind and giving this time of year. – 1 John 3:16 {Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.}

3) It’s a time of year where we can all be like little children, just like Jesus taught. – Matthew 18:2-5 {And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.}

4) Christmas lights remind us that Jesus is the Light of the world, and that each of us should light the world as He does. – John 8:12 {Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.}

5)We sing Joy to the world, and it’s OK. (JOY = Jesus; Others; Yourself) – Luke 2:10 {And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.}

6) People are actually nicer this time of year and even strangers wish each other well, just like Jesus taught. – John 13:34-35 {A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.}

7) We can truly be of good cheer and full of hope because Jesus came to save us. – John 3:16 { For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.}

8) Everybody loves when a baby is born, but none has changed the world as Jesus has. – Matthew 1:21  {And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.}

9) We get to sing fun songs that tells the story of Jesus coming. – Luke 2:13-14 { And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.}

10) The word “Christmas” includes Jesus’ last name. – Matthew 1:1 {The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.}

“May God bless you during this Christmas season and may we keep him in our hearts all year long.

“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”

Numbers 6:24-26″
