Merry Christmas to you and your family!
The landscape of the Christmas Season is one of miss-directions, for the Christmas season takes us down many paths. One path we may be pulled in is the remembering Jesus and his birth, and that is a good thing. Other paths are but miss-directions, and not so good. For instance the season may lead us to dwell on our current troubles, or past experiences that we would just as soon take a breather from then reminisce about, but those troubles and memories keep popping up in all their rawness. The season may pull us toward some temptations or habit that we are weak in, and therefore Christmas becomes a time of extra diligence on our part to avoid temptation.
In a season that is miss-directed let us open our Bibles and see the true reason for the season: 1. 1John 3:5, “He appeared so that he might take away our sins.”
2. 1John 3:8, “The reason the son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.”
3. John 14:9 [Jesus said] “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” I ask that I may comment here, so as you do not miss my point; Jesus came to reveal God to us.
