What is the real meaning and purpose for Christmas?

Some people angrily protest the practice of celebrating Christmas. Others celebrate Christmas but their joy is robbed by all the focus being on materialism and being so busy that we miss out on quality time with others.

Perhaps they haven't discovered that Christmas is a time of joy. As followers of Jesus Christ, the resounding message in our Christmas celebrations echoes with notes of joy — joy to the world, joy to you and me!


The Bible basis for this celebration is Luke 2:10-11, when the Angel Gabriel announced:

"I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior  — yes, the Messiah, the Lord — has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!" (NLT)

The Good News of Christmas


The gospel message is about the greatest gift of all time — God gave us Jesus Christ, his Son, who brings great joy to everyone who receives him. The purpose of Christmas is to share this gift. And what a perfect opportunity!

Christmas is a holiday that focuses on the Savior of the world. There could be no better reason to celebrate Christmas.

We can share the most wonderful gift of Jesus so that others may experience the great joy of salvation. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Savior and you’d like to experience great joy, you can receive his gift of salvation right now, and join in the celebration of Christmas. It’s very simple.


Here’s how:

  • Admit you are a sinner. (Romans 3:2310:9-10)

  • Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from sin and death and give you eternal life. (Romans 5:8John 3:16)

  • Recognize your sin before God and let him help you turn from your old life to a new life in Christ. (Acts 3:192 Corinthians 5:17)

  • Receive, by faith in Jesus Christ, his free gift of salvation. (Ephesians 2:8)


If you’ve just received Jesus, you have given God the gift He wants more than anything!  Merry Christmas!
