Human beings must celebrate the birth of Jesus every day for the very reason that God so loved the world that he give us his only begotten Son (John 3:16): Jesus, the Christ of God, the salvation of God (Luke 2:30-32) is God’s gift to human beings.

This was made apparent by Simeon, a just and devout man in Jerusalem who it was revealed by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Lord’s Christ (Luke 2: 25-26). When Simeon saw Jesus for the first time he said:

“For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel” (Luke 2:30-32).

Therefore, let us not get carried away with the things of this world because truly the only gift worthwhile obtaining in our lifetime is the gift of light which is hidden with Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:3) (1 Corinthians 15:45–46).
