By the time you are reading this it is likely that Christmas has come and gone.  The day is over.  The gifts are open. The food has been cooked and eaten. The family may have also left. It wont be long and the tree will come down. The lights will come off the house.  You’ll put everything in the attic or wherever you store it. You’ll then prepare yourself to face a new year and wait to do it all over again.
However, not so with the True Christmas.  You know, the one about the Baby in a manger.  The Angels telling the shepherds that there is good news that brings great joy.  The good news that on that first Christmas was born our savior.  Our Christ and Lord. Yeah that Christmas.  Well you see, that one never goes to the attic! You never take it down! It never stops giving!  It’s not a once a year event!
The true Christmas is ongoing.  It is constant. It is available every day of the year. It brings happiness and joy in February just as easily as it does in December. Jesus and the Good News of His salvation is the gift that keeps on giving.  The true Christmas stays with us everyday of the year.  He’s right there through the good and the bad. The happy and the sad.  He never leaves us.  He never forsakes us.
When we think about how deserving we are of such a great salvation we quickly realize that we are not deserving at all. We begin to truly appreciate how precious is the gift of God’s Son that gave so that we might have eternal.
I join with the Apostle Paul and say “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15).
I hope you all have had a wonderful Holiday Season. Don’t put Jesus on the shelf just because Christmas is over.  We should continue to honor Him and worship Him throughout the year.  Make it a resolution.  Make it a commitment.
Love you
Let’s get ready to Serve!!
