Christmas is stressful. Buying gifts, wrapping presents, grocery shopping, traveling… it is all so exhausting. You may spend so much time and effort preparing for the holidays that you don’t have much time and effort left to enjoy it.
But what if that all changed? What if this holiday brought you a sense of joy, hope, and acceptance? What if there was more to Christmas than the hustle and bustle we find ourselves immersed in every year?
The good news: there is more. Christmas is the celebration of Emmanuel: God with Us. It’s is about Jesus’ birth in a stable, coming to earth to save the world. It means that we can be free from sin, because God takes our sin away through the gift of His Son, Jesus.
