Many of us know the “Christmas story” but do we really take it in? Do we really understand what it really means? One name for Jesus is Emmanuel which means “God with us”. Jesus came to earth to connect with us, to forgive our sins and bring us peace with God. This is amazing!
In Matthew chapter 11:28-30, Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” This Christmas, lay down your busyness of trying to impress others and God, come to Him and find your rest. Jesus came to earth for you. To forgive your sins and bring you peace. Believe Him. Enjoy Him. Celebrate Him.
