Grasping the Meaning of Christmas

Leave a comment

As we get closer to Christmas I thought I would look for some quotes that help to remind me of the real meaning of Christmas.  This one is from Hugh W Pinnock.

James, the Lord’s half-brother (see Galatians 1:19), thoughtfully wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift [the Atonement] is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17). This being true then, we must help others to grasp the true meaning of the Atonement and Christmas, which is Christ.

 

Think of the influence you…can have on parents, siblings, friends, and relatives by helping them to think about Jesus even more this year than perhaps they have on earlier occasions. You will never forget this Christmas if you do.

 

(Hugh W Pinnock, BYU Speeches, 9 December 1997)
