IT’S BEGINNING TO FEEL A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

YOUR DAILY MOMENT: Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
December 3, 2017

My house is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  I have worked on the tree for five days.  It is about 3/4 complete. My lovely Christmas village is complete and the exterior decorations are finished. Yes, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but does it feel a lot like Christmas? I have to admit, it doesn’t.  I have been so busy with decorating, and shopping, and baking, and cleaning, that I have not had much time to think about what the true meaning of Christmas.  It seems that is the case every year. I understand non-Christians being caught up in the secular side of Christmas, but for Christians, it is shameful when we leave Christ out of our Christmas.

Christmas begins when Jesus invades our hearts.  Our hearts will then manifest His presence in our lives.  We will feel it and we will show it to the world. This should be true every day of the year, but especially at Christmas, when we are making so much effort to recognize His birth.

My challenge to all my readers is to not only make your home look like Christmas, but feel like Christmas. It must begin in the hearts of those who believe.
