The true meaning of Christmas everyone has forgotten

What is the true meaning of Christmas? Unfortunately, most people don’t know it, and some of them who know it, don’t understand it. Because humans were naturally born with eyes that can see material things, they became blind on things that the physical eyes cannot see. Sounds very unfathomable? Okay, I will rephrase it simply. Humans are accustomed to see the material world. Consequently, they become unfamiliar to the spiritual world. I heard someone saying “we must put a Christmas tree in our house so that we can have the spirit of Christmas.” I’ve also observed many people feeling unhappy because they don’t have money to buy gifts and buy food for the Nochebuena or the night of Christmas Eve. Are Christmas decorations, wrapped gifts, palatable foods, tasty wines, new dresses and money the true meaning of Christmas? Wise men will say of course not. What most people don’t know is that the true meaning of Christmas is not seen by our eyes but is seen by our hearts.

What the spiritual people know

Ask the kids what is the true meaning of Christmas, and most of them will tell you it’s Jesus Christ. I even realized that the tiny ones are closer to the true meaning of Christmas than the older ones. The hearts and minds of the adults have become polluted with their growing knowledge of material and earthly things that made them servants of money and fortune rather than servants of God and love.

Ask a very young baby which is close to your blood. Ask him what is the true meaning of Christmas, and he will not answer you, obviously because he can’t talk and he can’t even see you yet. Now give him a thousand dollars, and he will ignore it. Give him a hug with full of love, and he will smile, like telling you… that is the true meaning of Christmas – pure love. The younger a human being is, the nearer his spirit to God.

The true meaning of Christmas

The true meaning and spirit of Christmas is written in the Holy Scriptures. Can you figure it out?

John 3:16-17
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Christmas originated from the great love of our Almighty Father to His people – us. Because God so loved the world, He has given his only Son so that we may be saved and have eternal life. God love us so much, by giving us Jesus Christ, whom is the Love of God.

2Peter 1:17
For he received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice of the Majestic Glory was conveyed to him as follows: “This is my Son, whom I love. I am pleased with him.”

Our Lord Jesus Christ was introduced to us by our Almighty Father as His beloved Son, whom He has given honor and glory to the highest.

John 5:30
“I cannot do a single thing of my own initiative; just as I hear, I judge; and the judgment that I render is righteous, because I seek, not my own will, but the will of him that sent me.”

John 14:31
but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here.

Christ truly loves God the Father by obeying all His commandments.

The true meaning of Christmas is the act of our Almighty Father’s great love to us by giving us His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, whom is the Son of God, whom is the love of God, and whom loves the Father by obeying all of his commandments to save us.

The real purpose of Christmas is to save the people of this world and have eternal life. We can be saved by believing Jesus Christ as our Savior and by following all the commandments of God.

Matthew 22:36-40
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.
And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Let us follow the commandments of God. On Christmas day, let us depart from evils. Let us depart from pride, hatred, envy, drunkenness, gluttony, materialism, greed and from every evil that are dwelling in our hearts. Let the true love resides in our hearts so that we can give love on Christmas day and everyday, like God who is loving us even before the beginning of time.

    I am a follower of Christ, hence I can be called as a Christian. We can only follow our Lord if we know His words and teachings, which are written in the Holy Scriptures. Merry Christmas!

    Thank you and have a truly merry Christmas!

  5. Thank you for this beautiful article. I congratulate everyone to the new year. Merry Christmas to everyone! ;)

  6. It is interesting to read the true meaning of Christmas from a Christian. I am not religious. To me Christmas is about spending time with family and loved ones. It is about being happy and not stressing over other things in our lives. For many people Christmas has nothing do with Jesus or religion.

    Interesting post. I am not a Catholic anymore nor even a great fan of any religion. This means that I am losing my religion, but I am still keeping the faith.

    It is just unfortunate to know that Christmas is being highly commercialized by some people. While in fact, December 25 is not really the birth of Jesus Christ according to history.

    But anyway, I think we should make everyday a Christmas Day.

    Happy New Year!

    Thank you for the visit and insights.
    Yes,December 25 is not really the birth of Jesus according to history.
    I call myself a Christian because I follow and have faith in Christ. Whatever your religion is, or even you don't have a religion, as long as you follow Christ, you are Christian. True Christianity exists not just by religion but by true love and faith.

    I also rejoice Christmas everyday not just Dec. 25. This is becuase since Jesus Christ was born more than 2,000 years ago, every year is called (in the year of Lord Christ or A.D)

    I also observe that many people has already forgotten the meanings and spirits and Christmas.

    I think it would be a good statistic to know how many people celebrate Christmas because of its true meaning vs how many people celebrate/participate in the Christmas tradition for other reasons.

    Anyways sorry for the lack of comments, and the late Merry Christmas, but I am on time for something… Happy New Year! =D

    Till then,

    Jean
