The reason for the season? Who are we kidding? We’ve made Christmas into what we want it to be.
It’s about spending, receiving, time off from work, consuming too much sugary treats, and plenty of stressful running around.
The point I’m trying to make is Jesus isn’t just the reason for THIS season. He’s the reason, the focal point, for every season of our lives.
For those of us who are believers, we already know this. But with the heightened awareness of ‘Christian themes’ during this holiday season you and I have a unique window of opportunity to expose lost and hopeless people to the gospel.
Have you ever received a gift you would never have thought to ask for, but afterward realized it was indeed of great value to you? For some, Jesus is that gift.
They are missing something in their life…they simply are not aware of it!
May we (the Church) do all we can this Christmas to expose those in our community to the unique and unimaginable gift that is Christ Jesus.
