Celebrate His birth!

If you don’t do it during the “Christmas season”, than when do you do it? In March? May or April?

Most all celebrate birthday’s. We celebrate our own, our friends and family. Then why don’t we celebrate the King of Kings birthday? I know most of the reasons why, and here are just a few.

1.We are too caught up in the “material giving” to others and “Christmas” just crowds it out.
2.We don’t know for sure when He was born, so we just don’t do it.
3.We don’t care to celebrate His birthday because He has already died.
4.We are satisfied with celebrating His resurrection (Easter), but not His birth.
5. There is just too much controversy regarding His birth.

Maybe it’s time to take a fresh look at what took place when He was born. Hopefully this will spur us on to take a second look at why we should celebrate His birth.

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

“When they (the wise men) saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.
And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matt. 2:1-2, 10-11)

Also in Luke’s account of the birth of the Christ we see “Glory in the Highest” and we see “good tidings of great joy”. Who was also praising His birth?

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, toward men of goodwill!”

“Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.” (Lk.2:13-14, 20)

So if the Angels in heaven rejoiced over His birth, shouldn’t we? And if the Angels where rejoicing in heaven, what do you think God himself was doing? Setting there with his hands folded with a sour look on his face?

Come on, Rejoice!!!!!!!
It’s the Saviour’s birth! Let us rejoice! Let us worship Him!
