Every year the decorations, the festive drinks, the shopping, and the craziness seems to start just a little bit sooner. What if this year, we gave up Christmas? What if this year, we kept Jesus on the throne where He belongs and didn’t allow the hustle and bustle of the season to have our focus? We become so easily distracted and consumed by our lists, traditions, and having the picture perfect holiday, that we often forget what Christmas is really all about.
Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus; remembering on that one Holy Night, our Savior was born in a lowly manger to bring hope, joy, and salvation to all of mankind. This is the story we celebrate. This is the why for our celebrations. In this Christmas series we are all reminded that though we may have given up Christmas, Christmas is not giving up on us.
