CELEBRATING OUR SAVIOR
Christmas! Christmas represents so many things to people around the world. It's celebrated in many different ways — presents, church services, fun traditions, and likely lots of food! For many of us, it is a long-awaited vacation and time with family. Maybe it's a chance to travel to see loved ones or have loved ones visit us. The family time, peace, joy and, of course, gifts, are the big crescendo before the end of the year. We cap off the year with the biggest holiday of them all. For the Hart family, our traditions include lots of music, advent calendars, and stockings. The stockings presentation more closely resembles a set design than just socks hung up with goodies. They are anticipated as much as the main gifts, if not more. The children’s Christmas program at church is always a highlight, followed by getting hot chocolate and driving around to look at Christmas lights. However and wherever we celebrate Christmas, or what Christmas represents to you, it is the true meaning that I love the most. Beyond the down time, food, and presents, I love celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The myrrh, a perfume sometimes used in embalming, foretold His death and burial. Frankincense represented the offering He was to become on our behalf. I think of the crescendo of Jesus's physical life on earth that culminates on Easter, the celebration of what is to come, and the event that allowed us to be adopted as His children. Our hope is that you are experiencing the true peace, joy, and greatest gift of all, Christ's sacrifice on our behalf.
We wish you and your family the same this Christmas season.
–Dr. Christopher Hart
On the night of His birth, the Three Wise Men brought the first Christmas gifts to celebrate the newborn King, gifts which hinted at the greatest gift of all that was to come. The gold, proclaimed His kingship.
