Celebrating Christmas during a pandemic will look different than before. Many traditions are unable to take place. Churches are offering alternative service options with many members tuning in virtually. Even though Christmas may look different this year, one thing remains the same. We are still able to celebrate and worship the reason for the season. Christmas is a time for rejoicing in the magnificent gift that comes with the birth of Jesus.
Luke 2:9-14 explains:
“An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.’”
No matter where you are celebrating, let the gift of Jesus’ birth be your joy this holiday season!
