Christmas With Jesus
It was December and Winston Colony was busy with people purchasing, preparing sweets and decorating their home. Everywhere there were lights and the entire colony was filled with joy. Sam’s house would always look special every year. Every one would come to his house to look at his decorations. His mother used to prepare sweets and Sam would go and distribute to everyone. But this particular Christmas was not like that because Sam has lost his mother a few months back. He was in great sorrow. There was nobody to console him. Days passed by and then came Christmas.. Sam sat beside the door watching every one celebrating. Just then he saw an old man coming towards him. He came near the door and asked, Sam can I come in?. Yes said Sam with a low voice. Who are you asked Sam? I have come to celebrate Christmas with you answered the old man. Sam felt very sad and said I am not celebrating this time; I lost my mother. The old man smiled and said my dear son I know you are in sorrow and that’s why I came here to turn your sorrow into joy and celebrate my Birthday with you. Sam understood that it is none other than Jesus. Jesus hugged him and celebrated his birthday with them.
My dear friends, you might in the same situation. You may be broken, in sorrow, helpless, lonely, in debts, left alone, homeless. But this Christmas is going to be the best Christmas for you because Jesus is going to come to your house. He is going to turn your sorrows into joy. Jesus says, “You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.” John 16:20
Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you. John 16:22
