The Magic of Christmas

Christmas is ONE WEEK away!

Are you calmly sipping hot cocoa while admiring your beautifully wrapped presents?  Or are you frantically racing between shops while wondering how late you’ll have to stay up wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve?  Are you desperately trying to summon some Christmas cheer when all you want to do is cry?  Or are you eagerly anticipating a Christmas filled with family and laughter and perfect moments?

The magic of Christmas isn’t in Santa’s white beard or Rudolph’s red nose; presents under the tree or twinkling white lights.  It’s not even in the sparkling eyes of a child or the nearness of friends.

The magic of Christmas is the HOPE that was born into our hopeless world.  The GRACE that tumbled down from Heaven to rescue us from ourselves.  The miraculous sacrifice made by God the Father to send his perfect only Son into such a messed up world.

And He knows exactly how messed up our world is.  We see the stories in the news but He sees into the very heart of every person.  He knows our every imperfection, all the bad thoughts we think, and yet He still chose to send his Son to live with us and die for us.

To save us.

Because He LOVES us.

All of us.

In these final few days before Christmas, we at Jubilee Creative Studio wish you JOY, PEACE, HOPE, and HAPPINESS.  We wish you good times with FAMILY and FRIENDS.  We wish you delicious food and fun parties.  We wish you presents and laughter and all the rhinestones and homespun fabric your heart desires.

But most of all, we wish that you would take time to wonder at the magic of Christmas — the perfect gift — and the enormous responsibility we have of sharing that gift with others.

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
