Jesus IS The Reason for the Season

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is a born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

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.

Luke 2:7–14

The Christmas season is one of the most wonderful
times of the year. However, it is not the gifts, the
trees, the decorations, or the food that make this a
season full of wonder. 
It is when we remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus
Christ, that the Christmas season becomes truly special.
As we strive to remember our Savior, our desire
to live like Him will grow. It is no coincidence that
Christmas is the time of the year when people are
the most loving, the most giving, the most kind, and the
most grateful. 
As we try to follow Christ’s example this season and
do our best to live as He did, let us find ways to lift up
those around us. Let us celebrate our Savior’s birth by
being followers of Christ in word and deed.
We testify that as we do so, the desire to follow Him
that grows within us at Christmas will continue to develop
throughout the upcoming year.
