What Do You Really Want For Christmas?

Christmas can be a really difficult time.

Yes, for many people, it is a time of partying and celebrating with friends.

A time for exchanging gifts.

A time for family reunions.

But for some of us, it is a time of

loneliness and emptiness.

A time when we feel alone, even though we may be in a crowd.

A time when we feel a deep sense of sadness and isolation from the rest of the world.

A time when we feel we’re missing something—or someone—in our lives.

Every year, the song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey hits the charts around Christmastime.

Perhaps this old song is still so popular because it speaks of something that’s dear to our hearts.

Ultimately, most of us don’t really need Christmas presents—we just want “you”.

We want a life companion, a true friendsomeone who can give us real joy, happiness, and companionship. Someone who loves us for who we are.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if there really is such a someone out there? What if you discovered that someone out there is also searching for us? What if you were that special “you” in someone else’s song?

Someone wants you for Christmas.

You’ve probably heard that Christmas, which is celebrated by Christians, is about the birth of a person called “Jesus”.

But who is this Jesus? 🤔

Jesus Is God.

He created us and loves us dearly, and he came to earth in the form of a man some 2,000 years ago.

Jesus came to offer the world something that all of us need: love.

Not just the love of a good friend, but the love of someone who wants the best for us, and is willing to give up everything he has for our sake.

And even more importantly, Jesus came to show us how we can reconnect with him.

The Bible, which contains God’s message for everyone, tells us:

“[Jesus] came into the very world he created . . . to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.”

(John 1:10–12)

If you are looking for someone this Christmas, please know that Jesus is looking for you! He wants to show you just how much he loves you. And he wants to bring you into a loving, fulfilling relationship with God so that you will discover true joy and satisfaction.

Is this something you’ve been looking for? Is this what you really want for Christmas?

The good news is, God invites you to know him. You can tell him, “Yes, Jesus, I want to know more about you. Please reveal more of yourself to me.”
