I’m just as guilty as many others who get caught up in all the festivities of Christmas.
My mind starts thinking about…
Chocolate candy, cake, pies, eggnog, presents, Christmas Hallmark movies, and my favorite thing… stocking stuffers! 🙂
There’s truthfully no other REAL reason for celebrating Christmas than our SAVIOR…who gave us the most PRECIOUS gift we’ve ever been given…eternal life! (John 3:16)
I know this is as simple as it gets. We always hear others say “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.”
But I wonder…
If He came to your house or my house this Christmas… I wonder if He would feel that He was really being the one honored for His birthday celebration?
Or would He sit afar off, disappointed and wondering where His birthday gift was hiding or what happened to it?
Would He feel loved, cherished and honored?
I know we have our fun traditions…and Jesus probably is glad to see us enjoy our time with our family. Let’s just not forget Him. Read the Christmas story from the Bible before ripping open your presents.
Let’s actually give Him something special this year.
What can be our gift to offer Him this year?
Think about it.
Perhaps you can add a little extra ministry of writing notes of encouragement and share His Word with others this year. Maybe there’s a ministry you’ve been thinking about getting involved with at church? Or, perhaps you can make a goal to double the amount of gospel tracts you pass out.
Just do something extra that will honor our Lord and Savior this year.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14
God bless your week ahead and Merry Christmas to you and your family!
