International (MNN) — As we look around the world today, we can’t help but see trouble on every side. The trouble reminds us of sin. It reminds us that there is good and evil. But, there is a Light.

As we get ready to celebrate Christmas, we see ISIS torturing Christians. We see Boko Haram burning churches, kidnapping girls, and forcing Christians out of their homes. We see nation against nation–Ukraine and Russia. We even see nations fighting among themselves. As we see these world events, there is an answer for all of them: the Christ, born in Bethlehem so long ago.

But, that wasn’t the end of the story. Jesus didn’t come just to be born. He lived and then died for our sins. This Savior of the world became our Savior because He suffered, bled, and died for our sins–sins like those mentioned above.

At Christmas, we celebrate the most important birth in world history–the birth that literally changed the world. It gives hope to the hopeless. It gives life to the dead. It’s the answer for all questions. It’s God’s perfect plan.

We would like to hear from you today. Why is Christmas so special to you? What makes this day significant to you? Share your comments below.

  • This day I give thanks for being retired on social security plus a pension, so I can help my younger daughter, a single mom in effect, care for her kids. I reflect today on the many blessings Christ has provided, especially revival (Psalm 85:6-7) so needed in my life.
    This has included my wife and I leaving the church we have attended for 36 years, and to look for another local church.
    Part of the daily bread God has so wondrously provided for me is my learning my need of revival. The way he is doing it is humbling but necessary.
    I praise God today for His whole system of creating us with needs and how He meets those needs.
    I agree with Lewis Sperry Chafer that the creation as God made it is the best that can be done. God designed it and man cannot improve it by himself.
