Christians should ponder the true meaning of Christmas this holiday season
As the holidays draw ever closer, many students at Christian colleges and universities are preoccupied with finals, travel arrangements and finding time to brave the stores. However, for men and women of faith, Christmas can also be a time of reflection and a chance to celebrate the birth of humanity’s Lord and savior.
For believers, Christ’s salvation is the most blessed gift they will ever receive. However, as easy as it can be for men and women of faith to lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas amid the chaos of the shopping season, it is important for them to remember that not all people have come to accept Christ. As such, the holidays are an excellent time for students enrolled at Christian colleges and universities to reach out to those around them.
Spreading Christ’s message of love, forgiveness and salvation is a wonderful gift that believers can share with others. However, it is important for men and women of faith to use the holiday season as a way to reinvigorate their own faith and examine the decisions they have made during the course of the year. Prayerful introspection is one way that Christians can rededicate themselves to serving the Lord, and the celebration of Christ’s birth is the perfect time to do it.
