Bad news, my friends: it's cold outside,
and flu season is here. You might be
reading this and nodding your head in
agreement, but I have some good news.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
and it's the best time of the year.
I don't care how old you are--when it's
Christmastime, it's like being a kid all
over again. There is a special wonder
every time you put up the Christmas tree
and start decorating for the holidays. We
feel good about ourselves and those
around us. Hope is reborn.
You are bound to find a big sale or a new
gadget that you must have to complete
your Christmas shopping list. But for
those people for whom money is tight,
can I suggest something? The priceless
gift that I want you to have is mandatory
for every person who believes in our
great purpose: it is Christ and the Great
Commission. You don't have enough
money to buy it, but it is a must for you
to have in your home.
In a world that is driven by fear, we
are slowly losing ourselves, waiting to
hear a more horrific story than the last,
expecting the worst. But what if that is
not how God wants us to live? This gift,
which is sometimes called Salvation,
makes you walk lightly because you
have fewer world burdens. Salvation
in Christ can make every day better.
With all the problems in this world, we
sometime wish it could be Christmas
all year round. It would have my vote,
except we as Christians have a much
greater duty to share and give hope
concerning the one to whom we have
sworn allegiance--Christ.
Can a Christian fall in love with this
beautiful season and forget its main
reason? Yes. The season makes you
happier, but that's not its purpose. Christ
came so we wouldn't have to live in fear,
by Rev. Tyrone Green
Greatest Gift
but as a colony from heaven. Maybe that's
why the Bible keeps calling everyone
Ambassadors of God. When people
see you, they may notice your color is
black, white, yellow, or brown, but they
should see the love of Christ in you and
want that for themselves. As Christians,
we are the only ones who can truly talk
about peace because we have peace
in Christ.
Things were bad in the Bible during the
birth of Christ, according to Luke and
Matthew. There was no room at the
inn, and there were taxes that had to
be paid. But then there's Luke 2:1014:
"Then the angel said to them, `Do not
be afraid, for behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy which will be to all
people. For there is born to you this
day in the city of David a Savior, who is
Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign
to you: You will find a babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.'
And suddenly there was with the angel a
multitude of the heavenly host, praising
God and saying: `Glory to God in the
highest, and on earth peace, goodwill
toward men!'"
People then and now need to hear this
old story, but with a new twist. You can
talk about how Christ was born and died,
but tell them how he saved your life. Most
people like to copy others; let them copy
your peace in knowing Christ by watching
you. No one is promised tomorrow, but
if you live for Christ, you won't have to
worry if you did enough for Him.
John 3:16 says: "For God so loved the
world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should
not perish but have everlasting life." You
don't need to worry about dying; rather,
think about how you're living. Are you
living a life where a stranger can see
what Christmas is really about? The
only option for the world today is Christ,
and you are the only giver of this great
gift. Pass it on!
