The Holidays are certainly a time to remember those who serve us, especially those in the way of harm. It is quite appropriate for a Military blog to convey love, deep gratitude and sincere appreciation for the hard service of being in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan any time, but so much more during the holiday season. This is an especially hard time for the troops who wish more than anything else to be with loved ones.
But the purest love is given to us by God in His son, Jesus Christ, the Word incarnate, and this is what we celebrate during the Christmas season. When so many are confused about what true religion means, it should be remembered that the message is not that mankind needs the perfect example, although the life of Christ was perfect. Rather, it is that mankind needs a savior, and this was the reason He came to earth.
” … and she will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins … Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which translated means, ‘God with us’.” Matthew 1:21-23.
I wish all of my readers a very merry Christmas this holiday season, and leave you with a video of beautiful music. May you be joyful and with family.
