Simple but Special Christmas 2020
This year ZBS’s community is celebrating a simple Christmas with so many brothers and sisters around the world due to the threats of Corona Virus. This time Christmas is simple, but it is very meaningful and special because the Savior of the World has been born to save the world. If we see Christmas in the first century, it was amazingly simple but was a significantly special. Most of the people who met with Jesus Christ in His early days were simple but very committed people and their worship and dedication to the Lord was incredibly special. The place where Jesus was born was a simple place but became a special place of worship. The shepherds were simple, but they became special when they worshipped Jesus the very first time. Their worship was amazingly simple but incredibly special as Jesus was their focus and they gave the best to Him alone. In this 21st century we have many things, there are modern people, modern music instruments, modern languages, modern liturgy, modern cloths and food items, modern decorations items, modern trends but simple worship with dedication and love is missing in our lives, families, churches.
This Christmas reminds us about the real spirit of Christmas. Christmas is all about worshiping Jesus, dedicating our lives to Him, and loving Him with all our heart, strength, and spirit. Due to Corona Virus threats we might be isolated with only our immediate family. There might be many things missing and it seems that we must celebrate Christmas in a remarkably simple way, but it is alright. It was a simple Christmas in the first century, but people celebrated it in a special way. You can also make it special by worshiping the Lord in your homes, which will be a simple worship in your perspective but in Jesus’ perspective it is a special worship. Material things are not so important, but our worship, dedication, and love for Him must be special in this Christmas Season because Jesus is the Reason for the Season. ZBS Principal Rev.
