What Christmas Means to Me…

Significance of ChristmasFor me, Christmas is about remembering the significance of the Gift of eternal life with God’s Son, Jesus Christ.

My Christmas 2007

During this year’s Christmas celebration service, I was brought back to the time when I was lost (yet I didn’t know then) in darkness- leading an aimless life of wild living pierced with vices.

And somehow, God graciously intercepted my spiral path towards total destruction and condemnation. He sought me and saved me.

If that was not enough, He brought me into His Family- Hope Church- to be loved and taken care of. And now, I have a new identity and purpose in Him; His new creation (c.f. 2 Corinthians 5:17)!

But above all that He has done for me, I am deeply grateful with this fact that though I was once lost, but now I’m found!

My Christmas prayer

In response to His love and mercy upon me, I earnestly pray that my loved and close ones or everyone for that matter who are lost will experience His goodness and power in their own lives.

I pray that God would be merciful and snatch them from the clutches of darkness just as He did with me.
