Why Christmas?

In reflection of this past Christmas and the beginning of a New Year, I felt that it was a good idea to keep our eyes focused on the ultimate prize of our lives, which is Christ.  Desiring God created a short video of John Piper preaching, a couple years back, that reveals to us of what Christmas is all about.  It is a good reminder and I hope it encourages us to maintain our focus daily on the Lamb of God in the midst of our always changing lives.  Enjoy this snippet....

Hmm. That was an interesting video. Thought provoking, anyhow. I saw a sign on a church in town that said, "Merry mas! Just not the same without Christ, huh?"
I'm so thankful that God chose to give us forgivness in this way! It hurts to think of what Jesus went through, but it just proves how much He loves us.

Wow. Powerful movie. How often people try to push the REAL meaning of Christmas out.
Our God is greatly to be praised. What He went through for us. Wow. His love makes me so awe struck...
