Why do we celebrate?

Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh . . . Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have past away, behold, all things have become new. (1 Corinthians 5:16-17)
As we approach CHRISTmas there are many ideas of how to celebrate, when to celebrate, and why we celebrate. No matter what we may choose to be a part of our celebration, whether we are lighting up the house, using a treee, or exchanging gifts, we must be sure to center it all upon Christ, the reason we celebrate anything at all. Old things are gone. We are new in Christ. Do not the allow the world with all its evil intentions to keep us from celebrating the JOY of our Savior. Sure, a tree may have been an idol before . I agree that a Yule log was a secular symbol. CHRISTmas celebrations replaced the winter solstice and other pagan celebrations. However, we are NEW in Christ and free to celebrate Him as we see fit and as it honors Him! So go tell it! Let your light shine! Shout glory to God in the highest! The Savior has been born and the unsaved, unsure, and unknowing need to see it and hear it! Why???? . . ..because He is SOON TO RETURN!!!!
