As we approach the season of christmas, we must endevour to do thing so as to suit into God’s plan of sending His only begotten son to come to the word and die for wretched sinners like you and I.
Isaiah 9:6 says,”For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (KJV).
Matthew 1:21 SAYS,”And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins” (KJV). From these two passages, we discover that Jesus Christ is a free gift given to humanity by God – our loving father for the primary purpose of redeeming mankind from the slavery of sin. therefore as we celebrate this years’ christmas, we must bare it in mind that the kingdom of God is not in eating and drinking. For many years, we have grown with the mindset that christmas is a season of wearing new dresses, eating good food, chickens, visiting friends and lots more. but sadly, christmas involves not of these. If this is still the pattern in which we celebrate christmas, then we must be very careful not to continue in this manner. The fact that we are used to doing a particular thing in a particular way does not make it right. So as sincere and genuine children of the Most High King, this christmas must work repentance in our lives, else the purpose of God for bringing Christ into this world will be defeated.
We muse must also remember that the first coming of Christ to die for sinful mankind was in display of God’s unreserved, unquenchable and undying love for us. The bible said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (KJV). This is to say that Christ came in show of His love for us all (who hated Him). So if we must celebrate Christmas in an acceptable way, we must first of all embrace Christ’s salvation, which is the reason why He came into this world. Having accepted Him, then we must proceed to show love. As earlier stated, Christ came for love, therefore if we must celebrate the coming of Christ, we must do it in love. Let us use this period to show love to the less privilege, widows, prisoners and anybody in need. We must endeavor to extend our hands of fellowship to people so that our worshipping God will be so much accepted before Him. This we must do, visit the poor, give to the needy, visit those in hospitals and prisons knowing that alot of us has attended to angels without knowing.
Make this Christmas a memorable one. Make this Christmas a unique one. Make this christmas an exceptional one. That the world may know that we are the children of God Most High. We can not claime we love God when we do not love our fellow brothers and sisters. therefore to prove to the world that we love God, we must first love those around us.
