Jesus: Baby, Son of God, God

“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” (John 1:14)

How do you celebrate Christmas? Is Jesus at the center of it? How do you show your focus to him?

It will be only days before the majority of the world celebrates the birth of a baby in a stable whose name was to be called, Jesus. The Christmas Season is upon us, and I for one choose not to ignore it.

Some Christian organizations celebrate on the 25th of December, some on the 6th of January. Some do not like to celebrate either of these dates, because it isn’t the actual season of Jesus’ birth; others reject the commercialism that has come to symbolize Christmas, and so for the sake of their principles, they ignore the occasion.

”As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15)

I enjoy the principle of Christmas. I know the date was chosen centuries ago, to fall on the last day of a pagan festival to try to draw those pagans into Christianity. But still, I enjoy the nativity and all the modern lights and scenes that depict the night of the birth of the son of God.

I don’t like the commercialism of Christmas. I love the carols, but not the modern songs that talk about snow drops and reindeer and which seem oblivious to the reality of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, the Saviour of the world. I can take or leave a tree. But I don’t like to ignore the beginning of the life of the Word who became flesh.

READY: Choose how you will mark the birth of Jesus. Make it your own festivity, for you and your family, in your own way.

SET: Prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus in your own unique way.

GO: Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in a new and personal way to reflect the Christmas Season that manifests your relationship with Jesus, Saviour of the World.
