Today is Christmas Eve. Do you ever wonder why we celebrate Christmas?
For me, Christmas Eve is a time of anticipation. Just like in the days of old when the world was waiting for their Saviour. I have to often check myself to see if I am only looking forward to having some fun, frivolity and food, or am I looking longingly for a time of quiet, reflection and worship with the Saviour? Just like being in a birthday party. Do I immerse myself in the excitement of the celebration and thus forget even to honour the birthday celebrant? Yes, this is a good reminder to myself...don't drown myself in the party mood but instead, set aside some time today, to be with the reason of this season, my Lord Jesus Christ.
