What Christmas Is All About!


Dr. Sam Martin

Let me simply take a few moments to wish you and yours, A Very Merry and Blessed Christmas! Thank you also for being so faithful in reading ‘Mission Moments’ and for supporting the Mission.

Let me just share with you a few thoughts as we approach Christmas, and ask you to read and think about the words of a beautiful poem, “What Christmas is all about."

What Christmas Is All About

Christmas will always be for us
A time to reflect on Christ,
The gift God gave to all the world
Was the gift of His life

We know Christmas is not about tinsel,
Nor fancy Christmas wreaths,
Nor is it about all the decorations
That adorns our Christmas trees

And it's not about Holly or Mistletoe
Hanging from our doors,
Nor is it about the gifts that are left
By the jolly Santa Claus

Christmas is more than all of this
And the only reason why
We celebrate Christ's birth together
And the wonder of His life

So remember as you celebrate,
Just what it's all about
And invite the Lord to join with you,
Instead of leaving Him out

For He will always be the reason
We celebrate this day,
No substitute the world may offer
Can take that meaning away.
