The Heroes Of Christmas


Christmas is always a special day all around the world. It's all about celebrating the birth of our LORD JESUS CHRIST - the Saviour and Redeemer of mankind. It's usually a season of laughter and joy, shared with family and friends and loved ones. It is always a bright season we eagerly look forward to at all times.

Nevertheless, there are certain persons we must be eternally grateful to for the Gift called Christmas, for without them, we won't enjoy the joy of Christmas every year. They are the Heroes Of Christmas.

Here are they:
1. GOD the Father Himself:

John 3:16 gives a perfect description of the essence of Christmas: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" 
It's a tough decision to give one's beloved son as a sacrifice for undeserving folks. So, we are eternally grateful to YAHWEH for giving us Jesus.
2. Jesus Christ
Jesus is the reason for the season. Christmas is all about Jesus, and not to do stuff contrary to His Will - all in the name of celebration. Amazingly, Jesus wasn't forced to come down here to offer His life as a sacrifice to reunite mankind back to God.

As a human, how would you feel if you were asked to become an ant and start living with ants? This is what it's like for Jesus (the Immortal KING of Eternity) to come down here to live with humans. But guess what? Jesus did this willingly, because He loves you and I dearly

Yeah, the Holy Spirit also played a role as far as the existence of Christmas is concerned (the unity of the Trinity is so amazing)

Don't forget that when the Angel Gabriel was discussing with Mary, he told her "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:35). So, the Holy Spirit is also one of the Heroes Of Christmas.

4. Mary the Mother of Jesus
Of course, the womb that conveyed Jesus from the supernatural realm into our physical world, is a blessed one. The chaste Mary was able to earn the great favor to become the Mother of the LORD Himself.
Mary was obviously a strong woman. Don't forget she isn't married to Joseph when she became pregnant, and you can imagine what neighbors would have said. But she ignored the opinions of others and chose to carry and tend to the Baby in her womb.

5. Joseph
Definitely, it won't have been an easy task for Mary if not for the spiritual and wise Joseph that stood with her, doing all it takes to ensure the well-being of the Baby Jesus.

6. The Early Disciples Of Jesus
Before Jesus came here for His Earthly ministry, there have been several other religions being practised by different people. But after He ascended to Heaven, His Disciples, who were just around 120 were able to work hard to ensure Christianity spread all over the world like wide fire. If they had not partner with the Holy Spirit to propagate Christ, then you and I won't have known about Him today.

7. Every Christian In Our Own Day
Yeah, as Christians today, we are also Heroes Of Christmas, as we keep celebrating the LORD every year,  increasing HIS Fame, and making more people know about His amazing works of redemption.
In conclusion, Jesus is the reason for the season, and Christmas should increase our Love for the LORD, as we reflect on the sacrifices He made for us. It's not a time to indulge in sinful things all in the name of celebration, but should rather propel us to make a decision to stop anything sinful we have been doing.
