Each day between December 1-25, we will look at one of the traditional symbols of Christmas, what these symbols mean and how they tell the Christmas story of our Savior’s birth.
Many of us long for the simple beauty of Christmas — for all the old familiar melodies, words, and symbols that remind us of that great miracle of when our Savior was born in a lowly stable and held in the arms of his virgin mother. Yet over the years, the symbolisms and meanings of Christmas has moved away from a celebration of our Savior’s birth to a commercialized, profit-making event of Santa, Frosty the Snowman, and giving gifts to each other while giving no gifts to Jesus.
As the shepherd came to worship Him, so we bow before Him in worship today. As the wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, so we bring Him the gift of our love, praise and adoration. And we bring Him our gratitude for the blessings He has given us during the years that have gone.
As we begin this four-week journey of expectation and hope, known as Advent, may we do it in a manner well pleasing to Christ. May all we do and say, and every tribute of our hearts, bring honor to His name. May we, Your people, remember His birth and feel His presence among us this Christmas season.
It’s time for a change of focus
It’s time that we change our focus from a commercialized Christmas to the true meaning of Christmas and the symbols and meanings of Christmas can help us reflect on our Savior’s birth. Even as we long for the simple beauty of Christmas, let us even more yearn for Christ’s renewed presence among us.
My hope for you, as you discover — or re-discover — the meanings and symbolism behind our Christmas decorations, that you will remember the birth of Jesus, share in the song of the angles, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men. This holiday season, let’s celebrate His birth with song, joy, and true worship.
As we enter the season of Advent, we pray this year will be different. This Christmas, may we stop rushing, take time to breathe and take notice of Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to fill us with the joy, love, and grace that Salvation brings. Join us each day on a journey of remembering the symbols and meanings of Christmas. Merry Christmas.
