This past Sunday in Sunday School we had our Christmas breakfast with our families and then everyone scattered to their respective SS classes. We had an "informal" Sunday School hour and was meditating on it last night. So I thought I would pose the same question to my readers that our Sunday School teacher posed to us.
He asked us to think for a few minutes on what Christmas means to us and what we think Christ would like for us to get out of Christmas this year spiritually. We all get gifts each year at Christmas time. We should also get something from our Saviour each year at Christmas time as well. Is there something that you believe He wants you to get out of Christmas this year?
Some were reflecting on the peace of God. Some spoke of time with family. Some spoke of the gift of giving being something they want to reflect on and what a blessing it is to give.
When I was thinking on this thought Sunday morning it came to mind how so many people forsake Jesus every other day of the year except on Easter and Christmas. Some even consider Him on Thanksgiving. And I'm referring to saved folk....not the lost. I know that there have been times in my Christian life that I have not considered Him every other day of the year. So what I would like to reflect on and consider this Christmas holiday is the importance of considering Him every other day of the year. So many will not be doing that. They will consider Him on Christmas Day....but before then they are considering all the gifts they "need" to buy and all the food they need to cook or make for family coming in. Then they will consider Christ on the day we celebrate His birthday but then be right back to the busy-ness of life the day after Christmas. That my friends is a shame.
So tell me in a comment....what is it you would like to receive or reflect on spiritually this Christmas time? I look forward to seeing your thoughts on this.
