It 'tis the season for a lot of celebrating. Unfortunately, we are all aware that our celebrations of Christmas often neglect the real focus of Christmas. We forget the precious gift that has been deposited in the sinful world. We neglect the one who gives us hope. Every year we vow again to be more Christ-centered during the Christmas season. Every year we get sucked back into the rat-race of overspending, overeating, and over-committing our time.
John Piippo has written an insightful blog deconstructing our Christmas celebration. I invite you to take a look at it: http://www.johnpiippo.com/2007/12/deconstructing-holidays.html
Did you read it? Now instead of making hollow statements about how we ought to change our focus during Christmas...just do it! Figure out one way to start the process of recovering a God-centered celebration. Then, do it!
Send me an email. I would love to hear your creative way of refocusing upon Jesus during the Christmas season.
