For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 NIV
It’s almost here! The most joyous and yet, potentially the most stressful time of the year.
Each year I have every intention to keep Christ in Christmas, yet as a plethora of tasks scream for my attention, many times I find myself being pulled away from the true meaning of Christmas and dragged into the hustle and bustle of the season.
Jesus in Christmas
A few years ago I realized that keeping Jesus in Christmas is not something that just happens.
If I really wanted to express my faith in this way….I must be intentional.
I wrote a series for my FB page called “The Reason for the Season… 25 Days of Preparation for Christmas.”
I have re-read this each Christmas to keep myself focused on why and Who I am celebrating.
This week I read a post by Betsy at Faith Spilling Over that fueled this desire in me.
She sends us an invitation to open our doors to Jesus this Christmas. In addition to showing us 4 ways to invite Jesus in, she also provides us with a month long series on the I AM statements of Jesus.
What a perfect addition to aid me in Keeping Christ in Christmas!
Thanks, Betsy for this encouraging post! You can read more of When You Want More of Jesus at faithspillingover.com
