It’s modern day. Things are different now. That’s what we always think. A baby being born of a virgin? The guiding star in the sky? A boy raised a carpenter that heals the sick and makes the blind to see? A death on a cross that takes away all my sins? Are we children? Are we supposed to believe in miracles?
Christmas Eve. Is tomorrow a fairy tale for children? Is it only about the presents and the stockings and the here and the now? If Christmas is not real, then this life that I live is meaningless.
Where do you get your morals? You choose what is right for you? What about a serial killer? Oh, they don’t get to decide. What about terrorists? You get to decide until it brings harm to someone else? Then I am only in this for me. Then it is survival of the fittest. That is what the Nazis believed. What about the leper? When they were the outcast, Jesus said that they had meaning. What about the children that culture said had not earned their status, Jesus said that we are to be like them. When some religions drink kool aid and commit suicide together and some religions sacrifice babies, they can’t all be right. Because, mine at least, says that is wrong.
Christmas is the day that my God became man and was born on this earth to make all the wrongs in the world right. Jesus was born because he loves me and he loves you. He is the only god that does that, the only god that says, it is not about what you do but what I do for you. There is no other religion where god loves me like that! He is my hope, he is my peace! Why do people try to convince me otherwise?! What if it is you that is missing out? Do you have this peace? Is Christmas bigger for you? To me, Christmas is everything! Without Christmas, I have nothing!
But, it is Christmas Eve. The celebration has been building up for a month. Tomorrow we are going to wake with wonder in our hearts, tomorrow the whole day is spent in merriment. Tomorrow we remember the most important birthday in the history of time, God was born! There is hope, there is an answer, there is relief, we are saved! There are miracles! Life is worth living because tomorrow is Christmas!
