There are a lot of things we can celebrate at Christmas. We can celebrate being together as a family. We can celebrate finding a perfect gift or getting something awesome. We can celebrate the movies we love to watch and the traditions we love. But if you want to want to move from obligation to celebration, you need to celebrate Jesus within all those other things. You give those gifts because Jesus has given you the gift of grace. Hang those lights because Jesus has lit up the darkness. Enjoy your relationships because Jesus has made possible a relationship with God. Enjoy all the traditions because they are a way for you to celebrate the fact that wonderful counselor, the mighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace has come to be your leader and forgiver. Forget about having a perfect Christmas. Forget about living up to some standard. Pour grace on your Christmas, instead.
