It is that time of year again where we talk about Santa Claus, exchanging gifts, gathering with friends and family and eating lots of turkey. In reality, Christmas is about a risen Savior who came and gave His life for us so we could live life to the fullest. Let me encourage you to keep the focus on its original intent: Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
Here’s a few ways we can keep “Christ” in Christmas:
- Be kind and considerate to people.
- Let them know that there is a hope, and life is worth living if we do it God’s way.
- There is absolute truth, and as Christians, we believe the Bible to be absolutely true.
Isn’t it amazing that we live in a day of “tolerance” and yet, the same people who accuse us of being “intolerant” are, in fact, intolerant themselves when it comes to our beliefs? These same folks want to get Christmas day off from work and give / receive gifts but don’t want to acknowledge the Savior of the world. Let me urge you to remember Jesus as the real reason for the season.
Just a Thought,
