082: Why Do We Celebrate Christmas?


It’s soon to be Christmas Morning! The gifts are ready to be opened. The turkey is thawing. Despite all of the festivities, don’t forget the reason we celebrate this season.

As you’re getting ready for company and singing your favorite Christmas songs, let’s not forget we celebrate because of Jesus Christ and him crucified. He came to earth over 2,000 years ago to give us life. Like we set out milk and cookies for Santa Clause, we need to prepare for Jesus’ arrival in our hearts and minds.

I have made the decision that every year, I’m taking a vacation from Christmas through New Years. It’s a time where I can do nothing. We’ll be staying at home, doing nothing, enjoying family and planning for 2017.

You will find my next blog post on January 2 and the next episode of the J. B. Sisam Show will be on January 4.

Have a very Merry Christmas, from my family to yours!
