Happy Christmas

LUKE 2:10-11 NKJ
10 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.
11 "For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Why say, "Happy Christmas"? Everyone knows that's not the
traditional greeting.

Tradition won't set you free -- but truth will.

Many traditions have grown up around Christmas -- some good, and some not so good.

Jesus of Nazareth may not have been born on December 25th. But does it matter? The important thing is that He WAS born, and that is something worthy of celebration.

PHILIPPIANS 1:18 NIV
But what does it matter? The important thing is that in
every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is
preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice,

This is the way to look at Christmas: Christ is being
remembered -- by the world. Yes, there is too much
commercialism. And, yes, Jesus is often forgotten in all the rush and hubbub of the season.

But how wonderful that the largest celebration of the year is centered around the coming to earth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
That is something to be glad about!

Let's not be sucked in to fighting about the negatives of
Christmas. Let's emphasize Jesus, and try to remind others that Jesus is the reason for us to celebrate.


I picked the above from an email and would like to remind myself this Christmas. 

Best Rdgs,
