SPARKS: Christmas Charge
Written by Vanessa Wilson
There is a magic in Christmas. Hearts are opened to a new measure of kindness. Love speaks with increased power. Tensions are eased…
Christmas is the time to spread cheer and happiness. Despite the chilly winter, people find enough warmth in their hearts to welcome friends and family home, and fill each other’s life with joy.
While it is providentially unclear of the Savior’s birth, let us remember that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. During this holiday season, as gifts are being given, let us not forget that God gave His Son and His Son gave His life that each of us might have the gift of eternal life.
Of all things of heaven and earth of which we bear testimony, none is so important as our witness that Jesus, the Christmas child, condescended to come to earth from the realms of His Eternal Father, here to work among men as Healer and Teacher, our Great Exemplar.
Moreover, He suffered on Calvary’s cross as an atoning sacrifice for all mankind. May this glorious day of our Savior’s birth resound with hope and peace on earth!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
