Keep Christ in Christmas

Keep Christ in Christmas

“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy one to be born will be called the Son of God...” Luke 1:34

It seems each year Christmas becomes more and more commercialized. Some stores began selling decorations in September. At the same time people are more concerned with buying “the newest”, “the biggest”, “the best”, “more lights”, “the perfect tree” and...the list could go on and on. How easy it is to get wrapped up in the frenzy of decorating and gift giving. All of those material things are unnecessary and have nothing to do with the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. While it is fun to decorate and give our loved ones presents, we need to truly keep Christ in Christmas.

Dear Lord in Heaven, thank you for our many blessings and thank you for sending us your Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. Amen.
