I was recently asked what it is I like the most about the Christmas Season…
And I stopped to think… of my answer… for I needed to write it down.
And as I did, this clear answer came to my mind:
The Spirit reveals Himself to the world at large during the Christmas season…as “love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, giving, and goodwill toward men” is experienced throughout the homes and marketplaces of the world, without people maybe even realizing it!
The loving smiles, kind gestures, helping the poor, getting with relatives not seen all year… this is all part of the Christmas Spirit…Christ’s Spirit being poured out upon the peoples. This is what makes the Christmas Season so special. This is why Christ can never really ever be taken out of Christmas…by the world just sending Santa Claus cards or saying Happy Holidays!
I ponder within, the great privilege and blessing I have as His Daughter, and you have, as His Son or Daughter too, that we can enjoy this loving and giving Spirit bonding us together and loving out through us, to the world, ALL YEAR LONG, for we have the Spirit of God and Christ dwelling WITHIN! As long as we have Him, in us, we will have true Christmas!
It is UPON the world at this time of year, it is WITHIN the believer all the time of the year!
Christ came that he could fulfill the mystery now being revealed, to and in us believers, which is “Christ in me, the Hope of Glory!” Colossians 1:26-28 Oh, that we believers, would operate in the CHRISTmas Spirit all year round!
OH, THAT THE WORLD WOULD SEE…
IT IS CHRIST WE CELEBRATE…AND HIS SPIRIT WE ARE EXPERIENCING…
AT CHRISTMAS… AND ALL YEAR ROUND!
Those who know Christ know you can’t take Him “OUT OF CHRISTMAS” with Happy Holidays,
For they, the Holidays, just ARE NOT HAPPY without CHRIST’S SPIRIT!
And neither are WE all year round!
From my home to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS Everyone!
ENJOY THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTmas!
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh”
Hmm… could it be this is indeed what he IS doing at the Christmas season?
I say “YES”!
And, if you come to Jesus Christ, making him your Savior, you can have his Spirit
pouring out upon you all year round!
So here is my card for you:
