No "X" in Christmas

"...But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. For to you is born this day in the town of David a Saviour, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!..." Luke 2:10-11

So often these days we see Christmas with the ‘Christ’ taken out and replaced with an ‘X’. It’s almost as if it’s a nameless celebration. We as Christians know how far from the truth that is. We read of angels appearing to the shepherds and declaring the birth of Jesus “Son of David – who is the Christ (the Messiah)”. It is in no way a ‘nameless’ event – but a wonderful celebration of the greatest event – the birth of Christ, and the reconciliation to God He brought to us all.

So let’s keep the ‘Christ’ in Christmas.

Christmas must always start with Christ
Because He has saved us and changed our lives
