Christmas:What’s the Point? {Day27}

If all of our baking and decorating doesn’t point others to Jesus, then there is no point.

That is my simple message to you on this day. There are less than 2 months until the DAY we celebrate Jesus’ birth. But that gives us 60 days to prepare our hearts, minds, homes and gifts to SPEAK life and love and hope to our neighbours, family and friends.  Christmas has a point.  The point is Jesus.  The point is LOVE.  That is why He came.

1 Corinthians 13(my paraphrase)

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love,

I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,

and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,

 but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4    The spirit of CHRIST in ME is patient, {IT} is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

CHRISTMAS does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
