Christmas means you are inherently loved and valued because God says you were worth fighting and dying for. Christmas means you are not alone in your challenges; that God shows up to comfort you in suffering and works His good in all things. Christmas means you are never trapped and condemned by your shortcomings or all the bad things you've done. You don't have to pay for your mistakes at God's feet. Jesus already has. Grace, hope, forgiveness and true love: it was all born Christmas day. That is good news. Receive it—really receive it—and Christmas will start to come to life in you despite the mess. It’s not about a having the perfect Christmas; it’s about celebrating the perfect Savior.
