When did you learn your ABC's? You probably don't remember because we learn them very early on in life. Why is that? The ABC's do more than just make up the alphabet; they are the foundation upon which we build language, communication, and life.
Do you know your Christmas ABC's? What is the language of the season, and what does it mean? What is a truly meaningful celebration of this season built upon?
Would you join me on a journey to and through Christmas with the ABC's of the season? This series may well extend beyond the Christmas season, for the blessings of the gift of God's Son to us are meaningful the whole year round and encourage us for our everyday life.
The word cloud above (based on a Christmas alphabet poem) features our stopping points along the way. You probably notice that the word SAVIOR is at the center of it all. That's because the basic ABC truth at the heart of all we need to know about Christmas is this: Jesus came to be our Savior, to rescue us from our sins. This truth is the foundation for a meaningful Christmas. More than that, it is the foundation for a life lived in the fullness of His forgiveness. Beyond that, it is the foundation for a lived under the promise of eternal life in heaven.
Yes, the ABC's of Christmas proclaim that we have a Savior.
So say it for yourself: 'I have a Savior!'
See how the blessings of Christmas extend throughout the year to fill your everyday life!
