This December In eKidz :: What We’re Learning

Christmas: Celebrating Jesus, God’s greatest gift
Memory Verse:For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

With the busyness of the Christmas season, it’s easy to lose sight of why we celebrate in the first place. We forget that at the time of the first Christmas, God’s people were anticipating a Rescuer who would come and save the world. That’s what makes a countdown like an advent calendar so powerful. It allows us daily moments to stop and reflect on God, who loved us so much and sent Jesus to be our Savior. 

That’s why this December, we’re “decking the halls” to focus on nothing but Christmas. We’re celebrating Jesus, God’s greatest gift! Because of Jesus, it’s possible for us to have a relationship with God that will last forever. This month, take time to remember the reason we celebrate in the first place: Jesus, the greatest gift the world has ever known.
