Christ in Christmas

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- December 20, 2010

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

Christ in Christmas is like memorial in Memorial Day, mother in Mother’s Day, father in Father’s Day, labor in Labor Day, independence in Independence Day, and thanksgiving in Thanksgiving Day. However, in our attempt to not offend other religions and to become politically correct we have diluted and desecrated the true meaning of Christmas.

Indeed, Jesus is the reason for the season. He is the explanation for eternal life. He is the answer from Almighty God for grace and truth incarnate. He is the beginning and the end, and a bright light in the darkest darkness. He is our hope on earth, as we prepare for our home in heaven.

If Christ is not in Christmas then churches can convert to corporate offices, and missions can morph into humanitarian agencies. Christ in Christmas creates a tension for those who have yet to trust, but to us who have been saved it is the most significant celebration.

“But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship” (Galatians 4:4).

Christ in Christmas means you live for a purpose much grander than merchandise and commerce. Your children have a legacy of love for God and country, and service to others. You work as unto the Lord, and you give generously out of gratitude for God’s bountiful blessings.

Christ in Christmas motivates you to live like you were dying, and to die like you were living, all in a spirit of faith, hope and love. By God’s grace you promote a Christian worldview populated by praying people and full of eternal opportunities, while on guard in Spirit-led discernment to Satan’s schemes and evil’s deceptive intentions.

Christ in Christmas compels you to exclaim, “He was born, so we would believe; He died, so we would live; He rose, so we would rise!” Therefore, in humility and with pride, boldly keep Christ in Christmas. His birth is your excuse to brag on Jesus.

The Bible says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
How can I keep Christ in Christmas with my church and family traditions, and in my everyday life and conversations?

    I am the owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently planning to broaden my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain share some guidance . I thought that the very best way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anyone could recommend a reputable web site where I can buy Vape Shop Marketing Lead List I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    Great post. I am dealing with many of these issues as well..

  4. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.
