THE WORLD AND CHRISTMAS
Were now talking about Christmas and how we as Believers can make Christmas more "Christ Centered" each and every year. We need to LIVE this or the world will never
know The Lord, Our Savior!
We need to make sure that JESUS is preeminent in ALL of our Christmas celebrations and activities. One of the reasons that is so important is... that the world seems to distract us by distorting the true message of Christmas.
DISTRACTIONS AND DISTORTIONS
The name of Jesus is seldom mentioned... instead we find that it is usually the holiday season with an emphasis on gift buying and gift giving. Merchandising and marketing have become so important, that it has taken the place of the festivity that use to be in the heart of individuals and families.
THE GREAT EVENT
Consider this great event called Christmas, this great event was God's greatest gift to the world -- the birth of Jesus Christ!
We read about this "greatest gift ever given" in LUKE 1 & 2
and in MATTHEW.
This great event brought "tidings of great joy" or the first news of the "Gospel of Jesus Christ" to all who would invite Him into their hearts and lives. A relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ is the most wonderful fellowship we can have in this world!
So you see, God has come to save me! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord is my strength and song;
He is my salvation.
