Christmas is a favorite time of year because I like to see beautiful decorations. I like to hear people talk about Christmas gifts and wonderful meals they will be attending. I love to see the beautiful decorations on homes, cars, buildings and more. I really like amazing trees and tremendous light. I like gifts in my family because nothing is expensive, but everything tells a person you are on my mind. I love our family meal because it is a time of gratefulness for all of us. We are a Christian family and we are so very grateful for the King who was born.
It makes me smile to think of it in a Kingdom way. This is a worldwide birth party for my King even when people who don’t know Him yet light the lights, buy the gifts and have the meals for people. You see … the enemy cannot and will not ever receive true attention; and certainly not any praise at all that belongs to The King of Kings. Everything at this time of year makes people think about the word Christmas and those first five letters enter hearts and mind and there are people come to Christ because of it each year! The word Xmas too does not turn people away from Christ because people who don’t believe always check to see what the X really means and guess what? They are introduced to Christ too! Recently sharing, myself, that the X is from the Greek “Chi” which is the first letter of a Greek word that means Christ!
All around me the lights let who pass places know that Christmas is celebrated or respected in this place. Yes … this is Christ followers as well as those who do not follow Him. Gift wrap and inexpensive things that anyone can buy for someone else. A move that allows a person to give to anyone as an act of love and care or even just for tradition. Yes … this is Christ followers as well as those who do not follow Him. Meals where families come together similar to Thanksgiving. Meals that companies provide for employees; or even parties and celebrations. Events that make people come together thankful for relationships; thankful for family; thankful for jobs; thankful for time to just be with other people that they know. Yes … this is Christ followers as well as those who do not follow Him.
This day reminds us each year of the most amazing gift that any of us have EVER received … being harmonized with The Almighty God who created us! Christ’s birth, His entry into flesh, was to reconcile us, in spite of our sin, with Our Father! Thank you Jesus!! I am overjoyed that You were Born!!
Still my favorite song at this time of year is Born To Die by Glenn Burleigh … “God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself!”
God sent his Son into the world. He did not send him to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
I am celebrating the fact that Christ came into the world!
I’m not really interested in if this is the correct date or not — or if you want to call it Christmas or not; I am grateful that the Father sent His Son — and that His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace!! More than thankful for what His life has meant to my life! So Let’s Celebrate The SAVIOR!!!! Hallelujah!!!!
