Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

While no one really knows the day of Jesus Christ’s birth, we do have one day a year in which we celebrate His birth into this world, December 25th.  This of course is not to say that we should only celebrate on this one special day, yet it is set aside as a very special occasion.  We were all born into this world, and so was Jesus Christ.  We all celebrate our birthday, so why shouldn’t we celebrate the birth of our Savior?!

And while some Christians do not wish to celebrate this special occasion, many more of us do!

If celebrating the birth of your Lord and Savior offends you, then please by all means do not celebrate.  If it weakens your faith or causes you doubt, then you should not celebrate.

However, if you feel blessed by celebrating the coming of our Lord into this world, in order to save this world, then by all means celebrate!  Share the love, the joy, and the true meaning behind Christmas with the world.

This is an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting world.  A time in which much of the world may actually be open to hearing about the birth of our Savior!

Christmas is all about Jesus, about His love for us, about what He has done and who He is.  It should not be a time for division or anxiety, but of unity in Christ, of hope, joy, peace, and goodwill towards humanity.  This is the will of our Father in heaven!

Jesus Christ is a blessing to the world, He is hope for the hurting, comfort to those in pain and suffering, and salvation to the lost!

Let us as believers enjoy and celebrate who God is and all that He has done for us.  Let us give Him thanks, praise, honor and glory!  This is a time of wonder and awe, of inspiration, and seeking the things of above.

Let us show the world what Christmas is really all about!  Let us shine our light into a dark world, let the love of Christ shine through, and let us inspire those in the world who are suffering.  Let us keep Christ in Christmas!

God is performing many miracles at this time, He is opening blinded eyes, and softening hardened hearts.  He is giving visions and dreams of the truth, and He is bringing the lost to salvation!  This is all true, and it is happening now!

Feel at ease in celebrating the birth of your Savior, have the comfort, peace, and joy that He has given you during this wonderful and magnificent season!

God bless my friends!  MERRY CHRISTMAS! (Not Happy Holidays!)

    You said it Gordon, ‘it’s an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting world. A time where the world may actually be open to hearing’ the Good News of salvation through the only One that can forgive us, cleanse us, lead us to the Father. Amen!

    A time of good will towards all men, women and child! Jesus IS the peace and safety we ALL need. Let’s shine our light brighter. God is in His Throne, God is in control! Be in His will, decide to follow Jesus, be confident, be courageous, overcome with His boldness, His strength, always in prayer. HE will NEVER leave us, His word IS truth!.. Put your trust in Him. Follow His voice of love and brotherhood. Let’s put CHRIST in our inner most sacred part of our heart and thereby show the fruit of His Spirit lives in our lives. God bless.

    Well said Gordon. Not everyone believes it’s Our Savior’s birth, yet its not a time for bickering and animosity but of love and kindness. Through peaceful dialog and personal demonstration we show our love for and to God to all people. Emulating Jesus’ love for humanity. This season readily opens the door to that dialog. Maranatha!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you Gordon, The Lord bless and keep you, The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you and lift His countenance upon you, and give you His peace. I read your book about overcoming the darkness so I pray for God’s peace and protection for your family as well.
