For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 1:11 KJV)
I was watching a Christmas movie with my family the other night… it showed the usual hustle and bustle of the “season,” and Santa figured prominently in the scene. However, the really profound part of the show came when it showed a woman shopper holding about twenty wrapped packages, and she said to her child, “Let’s see…have we forgotten anyone?” and, as she walks away, the camera pans down to a small picture in a window of Jesus Christ. That was epic, and said it all!
This time of the year is for rejoicing while celebrating with family and friends…but most especially for worshipping the one and only Christ, who covered us in His blood and washed us clean. The reason for the season, as it is so often said amongst Christians. It is time for reflection, it is time for thanks, and it is time for exalting the King of kings, and Lord of lords.
The theme of anything but Jesus Christ seems to be politically correct. The practice of “Happy Holidays” while not mentioning Christ because we might offend someone has become the norm. Well, I’m offended by NOT mentioning Christ, and most important…how do you think Christ feels?
I’m guessing He feels it way more than I do.
So, I’m going to be “morally correct” when I say, “I will love, honor and celebrate Christmas, in the true meaning of its inception…Jesus Christ.
Dear Lord, forgive those who push you aside and may your children celebrate openly their love for You at this beautiful time of the year, in Jesus Christ’ name, Amen.
