A reminder for today
And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. (Colossians 3:4)
Christmas is just 4 days away as most people are on leave and companies are closing for their December breaks. I love to write to you about the way the world is trying to conceal the truth of Christmas by waiting for the arrival of an old guy with a bag of tricks on sleigh pulled by magic rain deer. What a bunch of nonsense. But yes let’s compare the lives of those following the lie and those following the truth. So you have two options. Option A is giving your life to Jesus and risking the fact that you will be prosecuted and condemned and around every corner the enemy will wait with new plan to make you fall and destroy you or you can choose Option B. this means you have to be good the whole year and then santa will land on your roof and jump through your chimney and give you presents. Tough choice.
But what the world wants is for all to focus on the now and forget about the live hereafter. So yes option B is nice and for a few years you will have a great life, but after that you face eternity in a nice and warm place where it will not be fun. In fact it will be pain and suffering for eternity, where option B will give you eternity with the Lord. What most people can’t do is the basic mathematics between a few years of life on earth and eternity that awaits us.
So back to Christmas. Christmas is the celebration of the gift we have in Jesus Christ and the life that awaits us. It is the commitment we make to live for His glory and to reveal Him to everyone. It is in this amazing time of the year that we can truly show Jesus to a world that desperately needs Him.
So today let is reveal the Lord in the way we live so that when He is revealed to the world when He returns, we will share in His glory and many will be saved.
Lord, thank you that we can celebrate your birth freely. I pray that you will be with all who reads your blog in places where we cannot freely share your birth and protect them in this time so that they too can share in the true meaning of Christmas. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
