Welcome the the Lucky thirteenth annual installment of my Christmas Music Marathon. Thank you to all of those who have followed this adventure over the years and a special tip of the hat to any newcomers that might be joining us. The purpose of this marathon is to slow the holiday season down a little and take time to focus on the true reason for the celebration.
Christmas is a time of giving. We spend hours, days even weeks making gift decisions for friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, charities, or anyone that we hold in special regard. Sometimes we forget that this all started with the most special gift ever given. The Bible tells us in the book of John that God so loved the world, He gave His only Son and whoever believes in Him shall be saved. Salvation includes the gift of eternal life from a loving God and it was purchased with the blood of Christ.
The Book of Luke tells us how the gift of the God, Jesus Christ entered this world. God stepped out of heaven in the form of an infant, lived a sinless life and sacrifices Himself for everyone of us. Christ was born in the city of Bethlehem. Have you ever wondered what it must have been like to take a walk through Bethlehem during the life of Christ? Take a few minutes to think how that must have felt.
A new image or two along with a video will be posted each day until Christmas Day, so come back often, settle in and celebrate the Prince of Peace, Wonderful, Counselor, Alpha & Omega. Merry Christmas y’all!!!
