Christmas is over.
The gifts have all been opened and the wrapping paper discarded.
The lights and decorations have been taken down and relegated to the attic.
The Christmas cookies have all been eaten.
The Christmas movies have been shelved and the Christmas songs have been silenced - save for the few holding onto the holiday season.
But, Christmas is about Christ and, today and tomorrow, Christ will still be Christ.
Let’s not forget that, for the Christian, every day should be Christmas.
Every day should be a celebration that, in Christ, God dwelt among us. Every day should be a celebration that, in Christ, God came to rescue us. Every day should be a celebration that, in Christ, we are free from our sin.
If you don’t know Jesus, I pray that you would come to know Him. There is no other name by which we are saved. There is no other means by which we can experience a relationship with God. There is no other truth. There is no other road. Forgiveness is offered to all, but given only to those who will accept it. I pray that you accept it.
If you do know Him, I pray that the spirit of Christmas would reign in your hearts all year long.
Merry (belated) Christmas, friends.
