It is so easy to lose the meaning of Christmas. We tend to get lost in the wrong kind of presents-or should we say-presence. We become so consumed with our own presents that we forget that Christmas is all about the presence of God. In fact, Immanuel means God with us. Jesus wants to be with us. He wants us to be in His presence. The book of Isaiah talks about Jesus being a Wonderful Counselor who offers us the gift of guidance. He is also called Mighty God who offers us the gift of strength. Another name of Jesus is Everlasting Father offering us the gift of security. And last but not least, He is called Prince of Peace who offers us the gift of peace-something students need more than they realize. If we can focus more on the presence of Jesus, we will truly discover what it means to have Christmas all year long!
