It's the Christmas season!

When we think of Christmas, we may have a lot of different emotions rise in us. Some of us are filled with joy at the thought of spending time with family, while some of us will miss loved ones that aren’t around to celebrate with us anymore. Some of us love the holiday baking and winter activities, while others wish for the festivities and cold to pass.

Regardless of what the holiday has in store for you, the Christmas season is filled with a lot of busyness for many. There are dinner parties, gift exchanges, and a lot of holiday shopping to complete. Most days can feel like we are just completing endless tasks that leave us exhausted and emotionally drained. In this time of busyness, it’s easy to ask ourselves why we have these celebrations in the first place. With a little bit of imagination, we can put ourselves in the place where the first Christmas occurred.

Over 2000 years ago, a young couple traveled for several days to the town of Bethlehem.

The young woman, Mary, was expecting a child, and she knew that this child came from God. Mary knew that

her baby would become a King, and His kingdom would never end. Mary gave birth to this baby in Bethlehem, and she called Him Jesus. Angels spread the news of the birth to nearby shepherds who came to visit the child.Jesus grew until, one day, He took on the wrongs of the world. He lived a perfect life, but because of His great love for manking, He gave His life away for the world. Thankfully, God raised Jesus back to life. Jesus was given to the world as a gift on Christmas, and each year we remember what we receive because of the baby in Bethlehem.

During this Christmas season, we invite you to imagine with us. Imagine what it would be like to be the mother of the child of God. Imagine what it would be like to watch over sheep while hearing news of a newborn King. Imagine what it would be like to take on the pain of the world out of great love for all the people.

Sometimes, it can be hard for us to imagine the perspectives of others. Even if we can’t imagine what Mary, the shepherds, and Jesus experienced, we can experience the miracle of Christmas ourselves. We can experience the love of God and remember the gift of Jesus at Christmas for all the years to come.

As you imagine and remember this holiday season, listen to Songs for Revival’s newest Christmas song, “Can You Imagine.”
