Considering that it's Christmas Eve and I don't really see any reason to condemn Christians who celebrate Christmas as a time to remember the incarnation of Christ of God becoming man, He is Immanuel meaning God with us. While Jesus was not born on December 25 but I see nothing wrong with having Christmas bonuses, Christmas parties and double the effort to do good on Christmas than you usually would but many people are caught in the worldly celebration. Now I know Christmas has its "pagan origins" but it's also an opportunity to win people to Jesus Christ to let them get this straight, "Jesus is the reason not just for this season for all the seasons."
Many people today are focused on the world especially during Christmas. I cannot help but think that people look forward to presents and parties. I have nothing against giving gifts or having parties but it becomes a problem when the Giver, the Lord Jesus Christ is not exalted and the gifts and parties are. People are very inconsiderate during Christmas like they purposely do something wrong, they say, "Oh come on, it's Christmas." to justify their error just like how Antinomians use God's grace to excuse their sins. Jesus was not born into the world leaving His glory above to save the people in their sins but from their sins. As the message of the angel Gabriel in Matthew 1:21 that Jesus came to save the people from their sins. When Jesus saves the person who receives Him by faith, it was to save that person from sin where one is saved from sin, is continuously saved from sin and the time will come completely saved from sin.
As Charles Spurgeon writes in his devotional during Christmas, he writes:
"Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."—Isaiah 7:14.
LET us to-day go down to Bethlehem, and in company with wondering shepherds and adoring Magi, let us see Him who was born King of the Jews, for we by faith can claim an interest in Him, and can sing, "Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given." Jesus is Jehovah incarnate, our Lord and our God, and yet our brother and friend; let us adore and admire. Let us notice at the very first glance His miraculous conception. It was a thing unheard of before, and unparalleled since, that a virgin should conceive and bear a Son. The first promise ran thus, "The seed of the woman," not the offspring of the man. Since venturous woman led the way in the sin which brought forth Paradise lost, she, and she alone, ushers in the Regainer of Paradise. Our Saviour, although truly man, was as to His human nature the Holy One of God. Let us reverently bow before the holy Child whose innocence restores to manhood its ancient glory; and let us pray that He may be formed in us, the hope of glory. Fail not to note His humble parentage. His mother has been described simply as "a virgin," not a princess, or prophetess, nor a matron of large estate. T rue the blood of kings ran in her veins; nor was her mind a weak and untaught one, for she could sing most sweetly a song of praise; but yet how humble her position, how poor the man to whom she stood affianced, and how miserable the accommodation afforded to the new-born King!
Immanuel, God with us in our nature, in our sorrow, in our lifework, in our punishment, in our grave, and now with us, or rather we with Him, in resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendour.
