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!)
