It’s about two weeks away from the celebration and remembrance of Christ, anticipated by the world. But how many are actually celebrating with this in mind? Other than Christians that are celebrating the joy of an anticipated savior. The other people are anticipating gifts and may not even know the whole reason behind it.
Often you see ad’s for extravagant gifts that people give to each other or “Buy Now!” so you can make that over budget purchase that is regretted later. For What? This is not the true spirit of Christmas. People scurrying at “Black Friday” trampling others for gifts that will fade away over time and be forgotten.
I say to you the one and only gift that truly matters is Christ and that gift is free!
So when you make that heavy-duty purchase, you know the one you can’t afford or maybe that person doesn’t appreciate (or does) just remember that 2000 years ago the most beautiful and glorious free gift was given to us and if you want to share this free gift of Jesus, just quote this and ask if people know why they celebrate and gather
“Joy to the world, the Savior’s come, let earth receive it’s King!”
Maybe they don’t know who the King is-perfect intro into what Jesus did for us when He came.
Now go, make disciples!
