Holiday parties are for showing off, CHRISTmas parties are for sharing about Jesus and celebrating His birth day!
How many holiday parties will you bring yourself to, to show off your latest fashions, food, or funny ways? Or will you choose to share, show and celebrate CHRISTmas the way GOD intended for it to be. Today, the CHRISTmas party you bring someone to, might just be the difference between life and death. Dying to self is a part of the birth of Living Life Eternal.
People want to tell you all about angels, but little about Jesus. People will sooner tell you about a saint that protects them before they tell you about a Savior that saves you. You might also hear out of someone, “If you hear a bell ring on CHRISTmas, an angel got it’s wings.” They’ll believe that, but they won’t believe…
Ecclesiastes 7:19 Wisdom puts more strength in one wise person than ten strong men give to a city.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know why the main colors of Christmas are red and green?
The red symbolizes the blood that Jesus spilt to redeem us from our sins.
Green has always been the color of life. The ancient Egyptians used the color green to symbolize the triumph of life over death. Therefore, green symbolizes the potential for eternal life that Jesus’ sacrifice made possible for all of us.
Other colors generally used with red and green are white, sparkling silver and gold.
White symbolizes purity, holiness, and virtue.
Because of its brightness, metallic silver is sometimes uses as an alternate color for white. God symbolizes what is precious and valuable, and so symbolizes majesty, joy, and celebration.
Because of its brightness, metallic gold also symbolizes the presence of God.
Blue symbolizes the sky or heaven, where heralds proclaimed Jesus’ birth.
Wise Men and Women Still Seek Him
A new name just might be written down in the Lambs Book of Life because you and I made a choice to celebrate this day in the manner of which it was intended. It’s not your birthday after all, but then again, that’s why the world took CHRIST out of CHRISTmas and purchased your life for a season of buying and selling. Only it was you that got sold out for something so unworthy. When it was CHRIST who died because He thought you and I were worthy. This season isn’t about you! It’s about the very reason we breath. Don’t go to church and sing amongst your friends all about Jesus and then go to work and tell them about all your fabulous gifts, glamour, goodies and oh so happy holiday self. Make a decision to choose Jesus this season. It just might mean…
To someone you are sitting next to who doesn’t know.
So before you get your tinsel in a tangle; remember it’s not santa’s fault at all.
Until all have heard of His love,
