We have our lovely white Christmas as others in many parts of the world. Snow just really sparkles up the drabness of Winter. For you that have it as a hazard to traveling, I am sorry, but it is beautiful.
I see snow as a type of purity and that was a major point of the Virgin birth of Jesus. A Virgin was chosen and the Child Jesus was born in purity. Added to that was His sinless life. We know personally that a day does not pass without us being sorry for one of our actions. And that is called sin. But Jesus never sinned.
That equipped Him to die for our sins; to take our sins on himself. Think of that indignity, the guilt He bore, the disgrace of the Father turning from Him. The humiliation of thousands seeing Him as a sinner. He, God the Son, loved us so much that He spiritually and physically suffered all this to be our Saviour and give us the GIFT of eternal life. Christmas is a time of gratitude to our God.
