Christmas Without Christ

 

In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:4

The western world is getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Although an actual date of His birth continues being debated, we who believe in Christ, know that He was born, gave His life at the age of thirty-three and resurrected on the third day.

For Christians all over the world it is an opportunity to reflect and celebrate the Living God who came in the flesh to save mankind.

But with the facts that reveal that Jesus is God, there seems to be constantly a move away from the divine divinity of Christ.

It is worrisome to hear people who deny Christ speak about the “spirit of the season” and think using catchphrases to extol a God they don’t even believe in will make them feel good about themselves.

However, the truth of the matter is that God actually stepped down to humanity (in the flesh) and experienced firsthand mankind’s fallen condition, yet, He was without sin.

What would be so touching to God is for the world to acknowledge His Only Begotten Son as our Only Savior…rather than seeing Christ as 50% discounts, 24-hour shopping, office parties, Christmas lights competitions and twerking Santa Clauses.

What is unbelievable about the “happy holiday” season is it is Christmas without Christ.

One day Jesus will return but until that time, Christians just can’t be silent knowing that Jesus is the reason for the season!

Luke 2:7-11
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
