He’s the reason for the season.

He’s the reason for this colorful night.


“An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” (Luke 2:9-10)


Jesus was born in Bethlehem

and came some wise men on this wonderful night.


“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:2)


But, my heart is breaking under the Christmas tree.

Tell me, what Santa’s done for decency?


Let’s talk about the reason we celebrate today.

Let’s talk about the man who will wash your sins away.


“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)


He’s the reason for the season.

He’s the reason for the colorful night.


Jesus was the promised Christ.

He’s the way, the life on this wonderful night.


“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” (John 3: 14-15)


My mind is made up on what I’m going to do.

I’m going to serve the Lord in everything I do.


“It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.”  (Luke 12:37)


I’m going to preach the gospel just as hard as I can.

Let’s ignore the day and exalt the man.


“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  (Matthew 28:19)


Let’s love our precious Lord.

He’s a man of all seasons.


Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year
