Real Essence of CHRISTmas

We know that the real essence of Christmas is love, right? Through love, God the Father gave to us his one and only son Jesus Christ (John 3:16). Through love, Jesus Christ laid down his life for us (1 John 3:16). But do you know aside from love, there is another real meaning of Christmas? And that is forgiveness.

Do you know that our God completely forgives us? God’s forgiveness is understanding the depth of God’s love to us.

For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.
(Psalms 103:11-12, NLT)

Through the verse from above, we learned that God’s forgiveness is out of this world, is of infinite distance and never reach a stopping point. So therefore, we don’t have to feel guilty for all the wrongdoings we’ve done in the past. Our Almighty Father has forgiven us totally. And the scripture also said, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1, NIV).

Now, we already know that our Almighty Father had forgiven us to all of our transgressions. Now, it’s the time to forgive ourselves too, so that we may live in an effective life. A life that God wants us to have.


Let’s pray.

Dear Daddy God,

Father, we thank you for your unfailing love, grace and forgiveness. Thank you that through forgiveness we understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep your love is. We love you so much. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
