The Promise Fulfilled and Delivered
It disheartens me that the Christmas season brings stress to many Christians. I guess because I only spend what I am able, and don't have children of my own, it really simplifies Christmas for me. I have told my family for years, if I never got another Christmas gift I'd be fine with that, and I still mean it.. We as Christians say that Christmas isn't about stuff or family or decorations, but I wonder sometimes if all those things were stripped away would we celebrate just the same? The truth is I wonder if would celebrate far more richly if this were so. Don't misunderstand me I'm not anti gift exchange, the presents under our tree are numerous, but honestly I rarely ever remember the gifts I receive each year. The gift I do remember is a devotional book my mom gave me last year called Meet Me at the Manger...and I"ll to the Cross By Leighann McCoy. It is devotionals from the Christmas season and goes through Easter. I recommend it highly to enrich your experience. Has anyone ever broken a promise to you? We live in a world filled with broken promises, that is what makes Christmas so Miraculous! Christmas is proof of God's promise fulfilled! See Mt 1:22-23 and Isa. 9:6 It happened at just the right time in history, not a detail was overlooked If you are satisfied with The Gift that never loses its wonder or power, I rejoice with you!!!! If you like many, have expressed Christmas burnout or desire to refocus on the Gift worth celebrating, then I remind all of us of the most abundant gift ever given! And His Name is Jesus!
