Day #11: DOC Blog Linkup!

Merry Christmas everyone!! It’s the 24th! 😀 And also, tomorrow is the ending of both mine and Blessing’s giveaways, so if you want to enter Blessing’s go HERE! If you’d like to enter my giveaway, go HERE!

Now, moving on to today’s post! 🙂 image1

I could’ve gone to DIY Christmas Cards, but since tomorrow is when my card giveaway ends, I guess I’ll do it then. Today, I’m going to be sharing a Christmas message.

Every year, Christmas is exciting, right? I like giving gifts to people, and receiving them, but somehow giving is more fun, isn’t it?

It can be hard to keep the real reason of celebrating Christmas at the center of celebrating. Jesus Christ. The “Christ” in Christmas, in which some people don’t even say. They may say, “Happy Holidays!” Or on signs, “Merry X-mas!” Why’s that? Maybe it’s because people don’t want to offend others by saying Merry Christmas. Is that what our world is coming to?

 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and 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 among those with whom he is pleased!”

This great news is JESUS CHRIST! 😀 And it can be hard to celebrate Him as the center of all, especially with Christmas chaos and unwrapping gifts, etc., but maybe we should really try to put Him at the center.

He came out of really great love for us and ended up dying on the cross to save us from our sins. He made Himself lowly, coming as a baby, being 100% man, yet 100% God!

Let’s thank Him for His love not only this season, but for the rest of our lives!

  1. Touching post, Olivia. I love that verse that says “for unto YOU is born this day…” For us. He came for us. Unto US a Child is born, unto US a Son is given. ❤
