For in GOD we live, and move, and have our being. - Acts 17:28

The Joy of a Teacher is the Success of his Students. - Samuel Dominic Chukwuemeka

Christmas is about Jesus Christ. Not Santa Claus.

Beloved,

Greetings of all good and perfect gifts from GOD our FATHER, the Father of heavenly lights...James 1:17

It is that time of the year again...December.

We celebrate Christmas, the birth of JESUS CHRIST.
Merry Christmas to everyone.

Christmas is the period when we celebrate the birth of JESUS CHRIST:
as foretold by Prophet Isaiah
announced by Angel Gabriel
conceived by the HOLY SPIRIT
born of the Blessed Virgin Mary
and proclaimed by John the Baptist

$\boldsymbol{Isaiah \:\:9:6}$
Wonderful Counselor
Mighty GOD
Everlasting FATHER
Prince of Peace

$\boldsymbol{Isaiah \:\:7:14}$
Immanuel/Emmanuel (GOD is with us)

$\boldsymbol{Matthew \:\:1:20 - 23}$
JESUS (Savior. He will save us from our sins)

$\boldsymbol{Isaiah \:\:61:1; \:\:Luke \:\:4:18}$
JESUS CHRIST (Anointed Savior)

$\boldsymbol{Luke \:\:1:35}$
SON of GOD

There is absolutely no mention of Santa Claus anywhere in the Bible.
Who is Santa Claus? You do not need to know who he/she is
Who is "Father Christmas"? You do not need to know who he/she is
What is Happy Holidays? Well, some people prefer to say Happy Holidays, rather than Merry Christmas.
But, of what use?
The main reason for the season is JESUS CHRIST

So, what do we need to do?
$(1.)$ Call on JESUS CHRIST always.
$\boldsymbol{Joel \:\:2:32,\:\: Acts \:\:2:21,\:\: Romans \:\:10:13,\:\: Acts \:\:4:10 - 12,\:\: Philippians \:\:2:9 - 11,\:\: Proverbs \:\:18:10}$
For everyone who calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved.
All Christmas songs should be about JESUS CHRIST and no one else.

$(2.)$ Share your bread with the poor.
$\boldsymbol{Proverbs \:\:19:17}$
As you exchange gifts with your family, loved ones, and friends; please remember the poor. Give them food and water.
As you give to the poor, you are giving to JESUS CHRIST. You are giving to GOD.

$(3.)$ Love one another.
$\boldsymbol{John \:\:3:16,\:\: Matthew \:\:22:37 - 40,\:\: John \:\:13:34,\:\: Galatians \:\:5:14,\:\: Ephesians \:\:5:2,\:\: John \:\:15:12,\:\: John \:\:15:17}$
JESUS CHRIST came down from heaven to suffer and die for us.
He came to set us free from sin and death.
He rose from the dead in order to give us new life in Him.
He gave us two greatest commandments - LOVE GOD, LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Celebration of Christmas implies that we should abide by these two greatest commandments.

Let us pray

Our Father in Heaven; the Ancient of Days ($\boldsymbol{Daniel \:\:7:9}$), GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel ($\boldsymbol{1\:\: Kings \:\:18:36}$), the GOD who is, who was, and who is to come ($\boldsymbol{Revelation \:\:1:8}$); we thank You for the love you bestowed on us through your SON, JESUS CHRIST. We thank You for life. We thank You for all the good things you did for us. We thank You for all the good things you do for us. We thank You for all the good things You will do for us. All praise and glory to You forever and ever. Amen.

Heavenly Father; please forgive our sins and wrongful acts. In any way we sinned against you or against our fellow men, please have mercy.

Almighty GOD; please be with us. Abide in us. Heal us. Heal our land. Bless our efforts with success. As we celebrate the birth of Our Savior, JESUS CHRIST; direct us to love one another. We acknowledge and proclaim JESUS CHRIST as our LORD and SAVIOR, and no one else. Grant that we always live in Thy presence. Protect us, O LORD GOD for in Thee we place all our trust. Preserve our spirits. Preserve our souls. Preserve our lives. Deliver us from every evil. We pray in faith through JESUS CHRIST our LORD, Your SON; who lives and reigns with You and the HOLY SPIRIT; One GOD forever and ever and ever. Amen.

GOD bless you.

For CHRIST JESUS,
Evang. Samuel Dominic Chukwuemeka (SamDom For Peace)
