The Christmas Nail Story

The Christmas Nail It is to be hung on a branch of the tree as a reminder of the true meaning and focus of Christmas. The Christmas tree foreshadows the Christ-tree which only He could decorate for us, ornamented with nails as this.  

The nail reminds us each time we look at the tree that it was a tree upon which Christ was born to die. His death was the reason for being born to this earth. The ultimate gift he would give was Himself, as His blood was shed to free us from our bondage to sin and draw us into a relationship with Him.

The Christmas tree is a reminder to us that Jesus was laid in a manger, made of wood, and then died for us on a cross, made from the wood of a tree. 

Make your Christmas full of meaning and forget not the Lord this season!
