Christmas is an annual celebration that commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ. This event is observed mainly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. The event is celebrated by both Christians and non-Christians. What differentiates Christians and non-Christians during this time is the reason for celebrating.
To Christians, Christmas is more than a festivity. It is a time to remember and appreciate how God came into the world in the form of man to take away our sins and reunite us with him. People have various ways of expressing their joy for this significant occurrence. They include Church attendance, Music and carols, plays, Gift-giving, family and other social gatherings, symbolic decoration and feasting among many others.
When it comes to gift-giving, we find it hard and can get stressed about it if we are not careful. You don’t have to struggle yet the simplest and the best gift you can give someone is the word of God. Many people have old Bibles or none. Take that initiative to make both God and your loved one happy by sharing the good news.
Our mandate as Bible Society of Kenya is to make sure that God’s word is open for all and that it transforms their lives. Join in this vision and mission by donating Bibles to not only those you know but also those you don’t know this Christmas. We received a gift why not give one?
