There is already in our secular societies a lot of advertising and marketing
happily announcing CHRISTMAS IS COMING!
ALL of the blurb is about fun times, family and heart restoration after a difficult year.
Money! gifts! Christmas has a lot of elements which most of us look forward to if the happiness of families and children is our goal.
Think about this! What happens if the Baby …..the One who came so long ago as the SAVIOUR has disappeared from all remembrance. Then we can call it a Holiday. It is Christmas because it is the celebration of the birth of Christ.
The whole Christmas package when the baby is returned to HIS place, changes our lives not just for one day of food and mayhem, but inwardly to restore HOPE into the year around the corner.
AS believers let’s make ourselves the promise to Keep our eyes on Jesus in the middle of ALL secular insanity’.
This picture was posted some time ago when the baby was stolen from a sidewalk natvity scene.
Someone’s joking response is truer today than it may have been then.
Perhaps the main suspect is Santa clause???
Blessings! Let’s journey onwards with JOY and Fullness of expectancy towards our Birthday Celebrations.
