Here is a video clip recounting the birth of Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago. For Christians, the birth of Jesus signifies God entering human history and taking on human flesh. The baby born in Bethlehem was the infinite God-Man who came to give His life for the sin of every person.
The birth of Jesus is celebrated because without His coming into the world, there would be no hope for mankind to escape the penalty of our own sin. But Jesus came to do it for us out of His great love and mercy.
Whether a person is a believer in Jesus Christ or not, it is undeniable that Jesus really is the "Reason for the Season." His birth was the turning point in human history, and the beginning of the greatest Gift ever given - the Gift of eternal life.
From Freedom's Lighthouse, we hope you will have a very "Merry Christmas," and that you will consider receiving the Gift of Christmas - Jesus - into your own life if you haven't done so already!
