HOW CAN WE KEEP THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS
Christmas is a very special time of the year, a very special holiday and unlike any other holiday that we celebrate. But have we lost the real meaning of Christmas and allowed the little bit of Scrooge in all of us to take center stage? Most of us know in our hearts that Jesus is the reason for the season. But do we really celebrate it in the true manner that it is meant to be celebrated in?
My question today is this, “How can we best bring back the true meaning of Christmas and keep the real meaning of the Christmas Spirit alive?” Let me leave you with a few thoughts.
We can begin by sinking the shafts of our spirits deep beneath the sparkling tinsel of the surface of Christmas and renewing within us the radiance of the inner meaning of the season.
Where ever you are pause and look around you and rediscover the faith and simplicity of a little child, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Know that who we are, everything that we do come from within. The bible teaches us in Psalms 27 to “Be Still!” We must learn how to calm our minds by being still and listening to the angels sing within our hearts.
Let us quietly evaluate our lives according to the Master’s standards as He set them out in His Sermon on the Mount, and as we begin that process, let us pause and reaffirm the supremacy of the spirit in the conquest of ourselves.
With just these few thoughts, let us learn to use the light of Christmas to guide us through the darkness of the coming years, refusing to go back to the dim kerosene lamps of the spirit when the brilliant electricity of Christmas is available to show us the way.
