For Unto Us A Child Is Born~ Isaiah 9:6
How is your Christmas holiday season going so far? For me, I think one of the best ways to honor Jesus Christ during this holy season is to find joy in Him and be a blessing to others.
I hope and pray that all of us can embrace the season and be blessed with the simplicity of the birth of Christ and the meaning of His first coming into the world and not be pre-occupied with the material things that rob us our joy during the celebration of the coming of Jesus into the world to give us eternal life. John 3:16. Jesus is the greatest gift the world has ever received and without Him, there could be no Christmas.
I love listening to Christmas caroles which honor the Lord Jesus Christ this time of the year. My all time favorite is Handal’s Messiah Hallelujah Chorus
I also love what Ann Voskamp once said, which I believe is a good reminder to stay focused on Christ and rejoice in the holiness of the season:
“Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing…. Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.”
Merry Christmas, Everyone!!
