Romans 5:8, But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Christmas is demonstration time. When someone gives a demonstration of something he/sh makes something evident, and we love to demonstrate our Christmas spirit this time of year. We love to demonstrate our cooking or baking skills. We love to demonstrate our gift giving or our gift wrapping skills. We love to demonstrate our decorating skills both inside and outside the house.
The most important thing for us to remember in the midst of all our demonstrating this Christmas is this, “Christmas was first and foremost God’s demonstration!”
Read these words from Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” So, this Christmas, in the midst of all the demonstrations of your love, cooking skills, giving skills, and decorating skills please, don’t forget that Christmas first and foremost was God’s demonstration of “His own love for us.”
Just how great was God’s love for us? The Bible says that while we were still sinners Christ died for us! Now that’s the Christmas spirit!
Think about it, and have a Merry Christmas!
