Every one should know that there is a reason for our life and that Christmas has direct bearing…
But how and why?
What is the purpose of life?
How does Christmas effect your life?
The purpose of life falls into several different areas;
1) The Main purpose God make humans was so that they could learn to love and praise Him!
2) From the human perspective the main reason for most people is to seek pleasure and pursue self indulgence!
3) Except for the birth of Christ, coming as a redeemer / savior; there would not be any real future, beyond this earthly existence! Because all the sin of mankind could not be allowed into the Kingdom of God!
Beyond the purpose and meaning of Christmas; we should learn that without Christmas this world would be truly different!
If people would take time to check the truth as to the meaning of Christmas; they would find that there is a purpose and reason for it… Because it marks a change in the world unparalleled; it offers the only opportunity; for the human race to redeem itself in a direct relationship with God!
*** One Solitary Life
He was born in an obscure village
The child of a peasant woman
He grew up in another obscure village
Where he worked in a carpenter shop
Until he was thirty
Then he became an itinerate preacher,
he traveled through out the Israel;
teaching, healing and blessing the people!
He never wrote a book
He never held an office
He never went to college
He never visited a big city
He never traveled more than two hundred miles
From the place where he was born
He did none of the things
Usually associated with greatness
He had no credentials but himself
When He was only thirty three
His friends ran away
One of them even denied him
He was turned over to his enemies
And went through the mockery of a trial
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves
While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing
The only property he had on earth
When he was dead
He was laid in a borrowed grave
Through the pity of a friend
Twenty centuries have come and gone
And today Jesus is still the central figure of the human race
And the leader of mankind’s progress
Of All the armies that have ever marched
All the navies that have ever sailed
All the parliaments that have ever sat
All the kings that ever reigned put together
Have not affected the life of mankind on earth
As powerfully as this one solitary life

Christianity is about a relationship with a risen Savior
Belief or following; Jesus, or Joshua, or Yesuha is actually a relationship with Almighty God! Jesus has had more impact on mankind for good than any other person: period!
If you look like at all the rest of the so called prophets, wise men or religious leaders in the world, you will not find a complete history to back up or show the depth which comes from the Holy Bible!
The Bible was written over a 2500 year period; by over forty (40) different authors; It is the Only Book ever written which covers the entire expanse of humans existance; from the Creation, through the agonizing journey of mankind in history to the end of the ages…
Where as all the other so called holy books ever written were by a very few men during one contemporary lifetime! Generally these so called religious writings require adhearance to strict rules and many difficult life changes; with not plan for salvation or forgiveness… So why chase after and look to such limited Religions in order to know God!
So when you stop and consider Christmas and it’s message about the Birth of Christ; the one who came as God in human form to provide a direct link for mankind to be redeemed – you must realize that it is something of very different importance!
Here is the summery of Christmas in a song by a wonderful young woman who uses her God given talent to place the Divine message for us all to hear and know! There is really no excuse for not understanding why Christ came and then how & why He died for you; friend! Accept it as your salvation is near! Amen!
Christmas is the connection of lost mankind with The Loving God Our Heavenly Father! Seek Him and lose all the legalism of religions... Christianity is an on going relationship with Our loving Heavenly Father Almighty God... Amen!
Don't get sucked into a meaningless set of religious laws which do not lead to The Kingdom of God!
