So this is Christmas? The day that is set aside to celebrate the birth of Jesus the Son of God into
the earth. All over the world, Christmas is celebrated and in almost every home. Even those
who don’t believe in the Son of God, (which is the whole reason for the season) celebrate Christmas.
At Christmas time a big deal is made about giving gifts and being happy. But many who celebrate
the holiday are not happy. Some have a religion but no relationship with God, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit And some don’t have a relationship, a religion, or even believe in the one true God.
What if this Christmas, the gift you give to others is Jesus? What if instead of spending money to buy gifts that others may not want and in most cases don’t need, we spent our time telling others about Jesus? Or what if we spent all the time it takes to shop, bake, decorate, and write Christmas cards, praying for others, or worshiping the one the holiday is supposed to be all about? What if we just stayed still, long enough to know, really know that He is God?
Many don’t know how to be still. Of course, we know how to sit down or to collapse in bed exhausted at the end of the day. But we have not trained our minds and our spirit to become still.
If the real reason for the season is Jesus (the Son of God) I challenge you this Christmas to:
Be still and know that He is God. Psalm 46:10
