More Than a Merry Christmas!

by | Dec 25, 2020 | News

The Christmas holidays are always a very special time of the year. It is a time when we express our heartfelt appreciation for others through our greetings and our gifts. It is usually a time for celebration and festivities, with Christmas parties and family gatherings. But, most importantly, it is a time when we pause to remember God’s great gift to each of us, His very own son, Jesus—the Christ—the Messiah.

Our blogs usually provide information and insights that we hope are helpful to you as you communicate with others about the great work that you do. At Infinity Concepts we are honored to work with some of the greatest Christian ministries and nonprofit organizations in the US and Israel. We love the work we do—and truly value our many friends around the world. But today it seems appropriate that we focus on the ONE PERSON this day of celebration is really all about.

During Christmas, we are reminded of the baby Jesus, the King who was born in a cave surrounded by animals; the Savior of the world who was wrapped in rags and laid in a manger; a simple, quiet birth in a small, obscure village that would change the world forever!

This year has been particularly hard for so many people. The year 2020 will be forever known as a year of sickness, isolation, and difficulty around the world. COVID-19 has changed our lives in more ways than we even know.

But that is why Christmas is so meaningful this year!

It is in times of despair that we need hope; it is in times of sickness that we need a healer; it is in times of darkness that we need light; it is in times of trouble that we need peace. Jesus is so much more than a baby in a manger…

He is our Hope, He is our Healer, He is our Light.
Jesus alone gives peace that passes all understanding.

Jesus said in John 8:12 (BSB), “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.” Darkness may surround you, but you can walk in His Light.

I want to wish you MORE than a Merry Christmas! I want to pray God’s divine blessing upon you and your family. May the light of Jesus the Messiah illuminate your life this Christmas season; may your heart be filled with HOPE and your home be filled with PEACE.

Be blessed on this very special Christmas Day!
