Well have you ever thought why do we have christmas?
Well I had been thinking about it a lot lately. This year I saw all the commercials and the decorations and the fast christmas music. Then it just hit me Why do we do this? Why do we do all this stuff??
What is this season really about??
Why are we doing this?
Well where is Jesus then?
Where is the celebration of a birth what we are suppose to celebrate?
Why are we giving so much to each other and why do we give to the poor and homeless so much during this time??
Look at Mathew 21:5 “Tell the people of Israel Look your King is coming to you. He is humble riding on a donkey — even on a donkey’s colt.”
Jesus were humble.
Are we humble in this time?
Are we focussing on Him or do we focus on our self ?
Jesus came and he gave not materialistic gifts, he did not pass our presents when he was on the donkey he did not say “Ho! Ho! I am here if you are good you will get a present!!”
No. He was humble and he gave us His life!!
God gave us eternal life and the Holy Spirit as well as the fruit of the spirit.
Mathew 28:19 “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
So no gift giving But making disciples!!
So this time let us make disciples let us give the gifts of the fruit of he spirit let us focus on Jesus and God and not the tree, Santa or the gifts !!
So let us refocus on this time let us really make it about God, Jesus and making disciples for God!! Let us give Jesus as the gift!!!
