A recent poll revealed that a surprising number of people don’t know that the purpose of Christmas is to celebrate Jesus’ birth. This startling fact should help us understand why there is so much confusion in the world and why so many people have the wrong priorities. Millions simply assume that Christmas is a time for parties, gift exchanges, and visiting friends and family. They do not realize that Jesus is more important than any of these things.

The Bible urges us to remember how many people do not realize that God loved the world so much that He sent Jesus, so we can have everlasting life and be freed from the burden of sin. He brings meaning and purpose to our lives.

Christmas reveals that God’s heart beats with compassion for lost souls. He knows that we cannot be free or find fulfillment on our own. We cannot save ourselves. But God loved us and sent Jesus to be our Savior. As Paul wrote, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

What are you putting first this Christmas? Presents? Parties? In the midst of the celebrations, don’t forget lost souls. Think about the people you know who need salvation! Make this a time to reach the lost with the Gospel and help others discover the joy of salvation!
