Significance of Christmas || Why is Christmas Celebrated?
Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We read in Holy Scripture, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
Life to me is Gods most precious gift. God gives life for a purpose. No one can live your life. You have to live, create the life, you want. Every day is a new day, new challenges, fresh opportunities and even problems. If life gives you one hundred reasons to cry, life gives at least a thousand reasons to smile. I believe when you walk up a mountain, your legs get stronger. You have one life to live, so much to give, so much to do, to accomplish… Life to me is an adventure, joy, creativity, trial and error. Whatever life you choose, live it out, make a mark.
