Another winter has arrived. It is a gift from God. With it, Christmas Day is pending and the Christmas Season is here. Who is it for? The truth is that Christmas (the celebration of the coming of God’s son to earth) is only for Christians.
Christmas is for giving and rejoicing in love gifts received from the Father. “Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” ( 1 Corinthians 2:12). The gift of the spirit which is of God allows Christians to see all the great gifts (all things) that He has freely given us. All things are the gifts of every promise that is revealed to us by His word through the Holy Spirit. All things includes the ‘horizon-gifts’ that are freely given, but still out of sight, like coming into His presence, seeing His beauty, inquiring of His wisdom, living forever with Him in His Kingdom.
A Christian Christmas is a re-reflection on the gifts from God revealed to us this year by His Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit’s revelations there is no Christmas. With it, there is much rejoicing, praising, thanking and eternal Peace. Christmas is for sharing. Share our revealed gifts from God. Tell others of His Wonderful works!
Know Him and have a warm, merry Christmas.
