Merry Christmas, It's TIme to Release Your Fears!

I believe that it is not a coincidence that Christ’s birth is celebrated in December. This is not to say that December 25 is the actual birth of Christ. But, I believe that God allowed for tradition to follow the celebration of the birth of Christ every December because Christmas is the perfect time to release our fears.

As Christmas is just 6 days away from the new year, this season is also a time when many people worry about the unknown future, whether it is about jobs, the Philippine elections or a major decision that needs to be faced. But, as God said through the angel who proclaimed the message that Jesus was born, said in Luke 2:10-11, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

And since God has provided the solution to our greatest problem, which is sin, then we can trust God’s capability to provide for our other concerns. So, release your fears as the year ends. Merry Christmas!
