Keep Christ In CHRISTmas

Today I was reminded of a story about a family on the East Coast who held a party to celebrate Christmas. As the guests arrived, they all threw their coats on a bed, and proceeded to celebrate, eating, drinking, opening gifts, etc. It was later discovered that the guests had actually thrown their coats on top of a baby, who was asleep on the bed, smothering the baby who died. They overlooked, or didn't see the baby, as they had gotten caught up in their partying.

 

This was a very sad situation, but is also an eye opener as to how Jesus can get "smothered" during Christmas celebrations, ignorantly or deliberately. Our world is moving more and more in the direction of trying to remove Him from being the center of this holiday. Have you noticed that many, particularly in our work places, are afraid or will hesitate in saying have a "Merry Christmas" ? Instead they will say "Happy Holidays". Some will call Christmas trees "holiday trees". In our neighborhoods, instead of Nativity Scenes on front lawns of houses, we see Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and other cartoon or fictitious characters. Christmas seems to be the only holiday where many don't want to call it by it's name, particularly in our work places. In the United States, we seem to have no problem saying any other holiday's name, like Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, President's Day, etc. But when it comes to saying have a "Merry Christmas", some of us stutter.

 

Jesus is the reason for this season, and every other season. For all things were made by HIM and for HIM. This holiday is a Christian holiday, set aside to acknowledge the birth of Jesus Christ. “FOR unto us a CHILD is born, unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and HIS name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9

 

Read the following articles and be sure you Keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas!! JESUS CHRIST – EMMANUEL “GOD WITH US”. The Greatest Gift That Was Ever Given - JESUS CHRIST.
