A Season of Hope
Isaiah 55:8 (KJB) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
The holiday season is more involved spiritually than what is presented often about the birth of Jesus Christ in this world.
What do I mean?
Take the many special church services, pageants, plays, the giving of gifts, dinner parties, crockpot get-togethers, or even the storyline in a musical staged drama, such as are about to play out on the stages of many churches, television, and in theaters in this world as an example. Food, fun, trinkets, Santa, and fellowship commonly used for seasonal resuscitation purposes in rejuvenating what we believe is the true spirit of the season.
We must be careful in considering is that our opinion, our ways, traditions, and our thoughts may not necessarily line up with the truth and celebration of the birth of Christ as is found in His Word. The Bible is the only tool necessary in evaluating choices of life; including the reaching hearts in this holiday season by pointing to the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.
For a sincere Christian, celebrating Jesus Christ is a natural way of life. Every day is one of unfettered hope and faith and in extending the love and mercy of God to other souls. Each day is spent living for God, sold out for His purposes and naturally departing from our selfish ideas and desires. Be careful to examine your life and consider that it matches what God teaches in His Word throughout the entire year and especially in reaching lives in this spiritually vital holiday season.
God desires and deserves unfettered adoration, worship, and witnessing three-hundred and sixty-five days a year, not just in the holiday seasons of life as we sojourn in this wicked world. Witness to others about Jesus Christ this holiday and every day by biblically celebrating His birth now and throughout the coming year!
