Christ’s Name in Vain
What do you think about taking the name of the Lord in vain? What constitutes such an action or verbal sin?
What about “Merry Chistmas”?
When we say Merry Christmas, what are we saying? Are we merry? Are we celbrating Christ’s Mass?
Or, as vehemently as we are fighting to keep the word, Christ in Christmas, are we just as vehemently keeping Him in it?
What are we doing?
What are we doing at Christmas to honor the namesake?
INVOLKING THE NAME, SANTA???
Where is Christ in Christmas?
Because if we are supposedly celebrating his birthday, How are we making His birthday about HIM? What gifts are we bringing him that HE would desire and enjoy?
Giving in the nature of need not want
Is Christ in your Chistmas?
If not, then just go on ahead and say, Happy Holiday, because that’s all it will really be about: happy, sappy day off for you.
Not Merry, or Joyful, or Hopeful
Not a celebration of the ONLY reason there is a season of giving and mirth: the birth of our Savior: Christ the King
Who showed us mercy by forgiving us our sins while we were still sinners.
Who bestowed grace upon us by sacrficing himself for our fallenness.
Who didn’t offer us useless gifts that money can buy and time can break.
But met us in our need by his love.
I pray you have a Christ-filled Chistmas this year.
But otherwise, Happy Holiday.
