He really is the Reason

So I was sitting in our Christmas Eve service last night and the running theme from last Sunday and last night was how Christmas isn't about the event as it is about the purpose of the event, Jesus. As I sat there there was a manger which is now empty, then behind that on the wall is a wooden cross which is also empty, then I looked at an alcove area that reminded me of the tomb which is also empty. I was reminded that even though they are empty there was evidence left behind, His DNA marks all that He touches nothing is left the same.  But there is also the glaring fact that He is still alive and well, and He is no longer in these places because He is seated at the right hand of the Father and alive in all that call Him Savior. He is  Emanuel, God with us and He will never leave us or forsake us.

Jesus is truly the reason for the season!!!
