Where in the Bible does it say that Christians should or shouldn’t celebrate Christmas?
Nowhere in the Bible are we being asked to celebrate Christmas. And we also read nothing about Jesus’ disciples celebrating His birthday.
Do you enjoy celebrating Christmas?
Is it sin to celebrate Christmas?
Is celebrating Christmas a sin? No.
It is with Christmas as it is with everything else: What is more important to us? If Christmas as a holiday is more important than Jesus… not good.
And the same way with money. Money isn’t bad either; it’s only bad when money is more important to us than Jesus.
And it’s the same with not having money. If our poverty (and the complaining) becomes more important to us than Jesus, it’s not good.
We don’t go to heaven because we are rich or poor, we only go to heaven because we take hold of the outstretched hand of our Jesus.
Is it bad to celebrate Christmas?
Take advantage of Christmas to give special praise and thanks to your Jesus; to tell your family about Him; to teach your children the importance of Jesus. And don’t forget about the joy.
Consider this: God became human in Jesus so you could seize the opportunity to be forever saved from hell for heaven.
And I don’t care if Jesus was born on December 25th or 27th; Jesus could be born on May 17th or October 29th; it doesn’t matter. Only one thing is important: that Jesus was born a man, for only in this way could He be executed in our place, so that we would never have to be executed, but be reconciled forever with our Creator. What great love for us. “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (Jesus in John 15:13; NIV)
On Christmas Eve, you don’t want to read Luke 2:1-20 with your family?
You’re too scared or embarrassed to read it out loud? No problem, then let your child read it. Or your mother or father.
Have a wonderful Christmas. With Jesus in the all-determining center.
