'Tis The Season

Christmas time is here!  The season for giving, sharing, caring, cooking and eating -- too much at times.  It's a time where family and close friends share gifts of love and heart-felt fellowship.  I pray that we all remember the reason for the season -- that reason is because we celebrate Jesus Christ our Lord.  Our Lord came to save us from eternal sin and death and I am grateful to God for coming down to save ME!

Christmas time is also a time to reflect on our lives and the type of relationship we truly have with the One we celebrate.  Is our relationship intimate?  Do we pray to our God in Jesus' name? Do we reflect on the significance of His birth or is it just another children's story?

As we move into the season of giving and before we go out and spend enormous amounts of money, only to find ourselves counterfeiting the real reason for the season, let us remember to celebrate the true meaning of Christ-mas then our gift giving will have much more significance. 

So, be of good cheer during this season of celebrating Jesus the Christ -- not because of the material gifts but due to the Gift of eternal life.

Merry Christmas to all and may God bless you according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!
