Merry Christmas to all my regular subscribers and to anyone who might happen to see this message.
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 (NIV)
We hear many reminders to “keep Christ in Christmas.” There are signs in some yards saying “Jesus is the reason for the season.” So, as I was looking for a photo for this post, why was it so hard for me to find one with Jesus in it? There were plenty that included Christmas trees, ornaments, gifts, and Santa. Since we live in a world where Christmas is commercialized to the hilt, it takes a some effort to keep the emphasis on Christ and his birth. But let’s persist through all the hype to celebrate God’s gift of a Savior, the greatest gift of all.
