“The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptised into one body and one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.”
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
Christmas is celebrated differently everywhere… Interestingly some countries don’t even celebrate it at all. For some, Christmas is a normal working day, children still go to school, and Christmas passes by without an ounce of the Christmas spirit we experience in the western world. For others, Christmas is a fun time. Christmas is a time were family get together, sharing food and presents with one another, enjoying playing games, and being together.
Yet the one thing that unites the believers around the globe at this time of year, is the fact that we can celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, no matter where we are in the world. It is an incredible joy to know that there are millions of Christians around the world that are rejoicing that Jesus was born over 2000 years ago, to take away our sins, to shower us with His love and to show us the way back to God.
Whatever you are doing this Christmas and wherever you are celebrating it (if at all), then remember this – there are others around the world that are as excited about celebrating Jesus‘ birth as you are. They may not be celebrating in the traditional ‘Christmas’ way that you might know, but they are celebrating because a Saviour was born – the Lamb Of God.
