Special Times*

The Christmas season may mean many things to different people. To some people it is just a day off from work. But to other people, it is a special time to be with family members. Families often have times of fellowship around Christmas. They tell each other, “I love you.” Family members take time to do special things for each other. Christmas can be a time to heal broken relationships in our families.
Christmas was a special time when God sent His Son to the world. Why? So we could have a special relationship with Him. Our relationship with God was broken by our sin. Jesus came to earth to heal that relationship. When Jesus died, He made it possible for us to be united with God forever.
Christians should always remember God’s great love. God showed His love by sending His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross. We should praise Him and thank Him for His great love.
