Our culture has so blurred the celebration of Christmas in America that most Christians have forgotten how to celebrate the birth of Christ. Let’s refocus on the main point: Christmas is a Christian holy day where God’s people celebrate God becoming man. If Christians celebrate just like non-Christians, it proves we really don’t know what we’re celebrating.
Christmas is about the key to life being delivered to a suffering planet. It is about the light shining into the darkness and delivering it. It is about the coming of a deliverer who frees captives from a hopeless spiral of destruction. It about God with us, actually living on the inside, giving continual guidance and direction for the lost. It is about God giving us humans spiritual languages to communicate directly with Him.
There’s no comparing Jesus and Santa; they just don’t go together. I’m going to get back to the basics this next year. Would you join me?
