This is oh so beautiful and inviting... BUT let us not get distracted and lose our focus on "what" we need to be prioritizing during this season. JESUS, who died for us,is presented to us as a child. His birth was foretold by the prophets of the Old Testament and the promise of a Savior is now given. But now the question is, "Have you accepted Jesus as your Savior?" Sure most will say they believe in Jesus, but so does the devil. Have you come to Christ with a humble heart and asked for cleansing of sin? This is the reason He came...to cleanse us of sin and give us the peace of knowing our eternal home awaits. He came to seek and to save that which was lost.
Jesus put us first, will we place Him first in our lives? This world desires for us to forget Him, and focus on Santa, gifts, parties, tradition, traveling and socializing. May we never forget the "real" reason for the season.
If we do forget, we may need to reflect upon our hearts and ask ourselves, "Am I really His? Have I given my heart to Him? Have I asked to be cleansed of my sin?"
For if we are truly His, we will desire to place Him first in all things. Merry Christmas, JO
