Some seasons are busier than others, but it seems the Christmas season is always full of hurry. Programs and shopping and get togethers and…life! It is easy to just exist, and sadly miss the joy of Jesus during the very holiday that celebrates His birth.
If you would like to make the most of the last days of December, and be prepared for the beginning of a new year, let me encourage you to concentrate on Christ. He makes everything better. I am reading through the gospel according to Luke this month and the Holy Spirit is reminding me again how wonderful Christ is. (More on that here.) Choose some way every day to intentionally think on the Lord Jesus and seek to meditate on Him as you go about each task.
During this month we are posting various messages related to the coming of Christ on our Youtube channel. The first is about the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who saw the Christ child. It is available now and a new one will be released each Tuesday. (Subscribe and watch here!) It is our prayer that these Bible messages will help you to think more deeply through familiar portions of Scripture and more fully about the Lord Jesus. Concentrate on Christ this Christmas!
This is a truth we all need in these days of distraction. We all need Jesus and He is all we need! In the words of Paul, “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11).
