Someone recently asked me: Are you going to give a Christmas message this year? I didn't hesitate to answer this question, I replied positively by saying, yes because John 3:16 says, God loved the world so much that He sent his only son into this world.
My dear Staff members, students and well wishers this is the reason for celebrating Christmas. God becomes man so that man might become God. God becomes human so that man might become divine. God becomes sin so that man might become justified. Covid-19 will not prevent me from celebrating the Birthday of Jesus. God the father manifested His love by sending his son to save mankind from various bondages. Therefore love is the essence of Christmas, as God proved His love for us. Someone rightly said that there are more people dying due to lack of love than physical hunger, hence let us spread love wherever we are, for human heart craves for peace and love. Hope is the reason for this season, for all those who are afflicted by Covid-19, He will strenghten our weakened faith by His very presence and healing touch.
Christmas is a celebration about giving, sharing happiness and spreading love. If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one, said Mother Teresa. Let the power of love transform us to be beacons of peace, joy and happiness making this world a better place for you and me. This Christmas may you be blessed abundantly with the radiance of Christ light and love.
A wish in advance for the new year. May 2021 be a year of blessings and free from Covid-19.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year 2021.
