We’ve made our plans. The calendar is bulging with activities. We’re taking time each day to focus on the real meaning of Christmas – centering ourselves and our families so as hopefully not to miss the true wonder of the season.
Decorating, planning, baking, sending Christmas cards, caroling, buying, wrapping, mailing, performances. All these things can leave us feeling like there isn’t enough time, like there isn’t enough of me to go around. If your arms are trembling from their load this Christmas season, ask yourself this…
What if there were no parties, no presents, no Christmas teas, no decorations? Not that these things are inherently bad, but what if for some reason we didn’t have any of it?
What is left of Christmas? Is there Christmas beyond the busyness, the stuff, the traditions and the outward showings?
What is left is what is really important anyway.
Two thousand years ago God fulfilled hundreds of prophecies handed down to us from the beginning of time revealing His great plan of redemption.
My friends, if the pressure to buy, decorate, gather, sing, watch, wrap or otherwise ‘celebrate; Christmas is weighing on you this week, why not let some of it go?
It’s not about work; it’s about worship.
It’s not about appearances; it’s about the Perfect Appearance.
It’s not about buying the best presents; it’s about receiving the Perfect Gift.
