What is the meaning and the message of Christ's birth? It certainly is not what it has become in our day, commercialism, consumerism and self-indulgence. The message is that Christ came to earth, was born in humble surroundings, lived to serve, suffered and died that we would be redeemed. When we let go of ourselves, detach from this world and join ourselves to Him and His cause, the meaning and the message of His birth is lived out in our lives.
