Celebrating Christmas

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Celebrating Christmas

by Rachel Jankovic

πŸŽ„When women read their Bible faithfully and hungrily, our Christmas celebrations will get better and better. How do I know?

πŸŽ„At Christmas we are celebrating that the Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us. Among US.

πŸŽ„If your idea of Jesus is a pretty vague one you have cobbled together from felt boards, rumors, inaccurate picture Bibles, and inaccurate discussions among Christians, how could your celebration of this incredible season be an accurate portrayal?

πŸŽ„The more you know the Word the more you know the Word Made Flesh. The more you know Jesus, the more you can imagine how to take all the things around you and praise Him.

πŸŽ„Bright lights in the cold night air are appropriate! Jesus IS the light of the world and He did come in the darkness. We have seen a great light, and we can’t stop talking about it!

πŸŽ„Food is a glorious picture. He has filled the hungry with good things! We continue to celebrate that reality at our tables, in our gift bags, in our food related ministries.

πŸŽ„Music is a language of joy and praise, and it makes sense that we mark this season musically.

πŸŽ„Gifts are a wonderful picture both of what we have been given in Christ and what we are called to be in this world- bearers of Good News and great kindness. Peace on earth and goodwill towards men is not a lame wish but a joyous declaration of a victory.

πŸŽ„All of this is only effective if you actually know Jesus and are using these things to express that knowledge. Have you been soaking yourself in Scripture this year? That will probably be visible in your celebrating! You know Him more and are more equipped to proclaim Him with all the trivial goods and expressions of delight we have available to us.

πŸŽ„The opposite is also true. If you don’t know Jesus as He has revealed Himself to us, your celebrations might feel thin. Like all the trappings of the party are stretched out over thin soup. If that is the case, don’t wait until the New Year to try to establish a Bible reading habit. Join us today, as we hungrily feast on the Word of God and as we celebrate the Word made flesh.

πŸŽ„There is a place for you! Come, and welcome to the party!
