Day 14: Remember Christ Our Savior

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)

“For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.” (1 Peter 2:24)

In our humanness, we are prone to forget.  This is one of the fundamental reasons why we have holidays.  They remind us of something important that has happened in the past.  Many Christians are dismayed at how Christmas has become so materialistic.  It is because we have forgotten why we celebrate Christmas.  Christmas is not about what we get under the tree.  It is not even about giving.  It is about what has already been given and if we have received that gift, the new life that we have.  You and I “were straying like sheep,” but now our Savior has been born.  Do not be dismayed this Christmas rather be filled with comfort and joy.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Savior lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His Mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
