The Real Meaning of Christmas from Guest Speaker Paul Chitwood

When Dr. Chitwood asked the students if the real meaning of Christmas was presents, he was greeted with an enthusiastic, “No.” But then he explained Galatians 4:3 and it became clear that Christmas is about presents. Not about the presents of new toys and games but the presents of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ who humbled Himself to give us these gifts: redemption from the slavery of sin and adopting us as His own, entitled to the same full rights as Jesus.

Christmas is not just about getting gifts but exchanging gifts. Jesus gave us an eternal present, shouldn't we want to give Him the gift that he wants as well? Shouldn't we give Him our lives? What greater gift is there?
