Let’s Make Christmas More Like Christmas
This year let’s make Christmas more like Christmas. Start the day with praise and worship instead of opening gifts. Thank God for all that He has given you and all the things that He has done. Thank Him for never leaving or forsaking you and remaining always at your side. Tell Him you know how much He loves you because He sacrificed His only Begotten Son. Focus on your value and how much your life is worth acknowledge that in your place was sacrificed the life of a King.
Let’s make Christmas more like Christmas. Celebrating the time when God prepared a body and sent Jesus to the earth. Not the Holidays or Xmas, decorating trees, buying gifts or shopping in the mall. Not eating and drinking hot chocolate, egg nog, sweets and delicacies and all sorts of good things. Meeting and greeting families and friends for weeks and days of this month celebrating yet forgetting why all of this is done.
Let’s make Christmas more like Christmas. Concentrate on what this season is all about. Focus on unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace. Let the joy in our voice ring out like the Hallelujah choir, Handel’s Messiah or Come let us Adore Him sung by a store front church where only five members in the choir sing. Joy to the World, Come All Ye Faithful or Silent Night not how big the group but the peace and joy that we feel and the presence of the anointing when each choir sings.
Let’s make Christmas more like Christmas. What an awesome God we serve. He deserves our admiration and our praise. Let’s make Christmas more like Christmas.
Jesus you are the center of my joy.
