Great efforts are being made these days, to take Christ out of Christmas. Because of so-called “political correctness,” many schools no longer mention the Bethlehem Baby. The old Christmas carols are never, or seldom sung in public places, and the greeting “merry Christmas” is often replaced with “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings.” Commercialism may be supplanting Christmas, but the truth of Christmas can never be erased. The angel’s message is still as much needed today as it was at the first Christmas, because we are just as much in need of a Saviour as people were then … we are still sinners. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”. Matthew wrote, “And she (Mary) shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. He is still the reason for the season. Let’s keep Christ in Christmas.
