Trees, ornaments, garland, and lights. Black Friday shopping and finding that perfect gift for everyone on your list. This seems to be what Christmas has become to most people. It’s about the hustle and bustle as we race toward the finish line of the holiday season. Thanksgiving ended up lost somewhere. Where once we took time to give thanks to the Lord for all He has blessed us with over the year, we have turned into a rush turkey dinner followed by who can get to the store the fastest and claim that $100 70″ flat panel television.
STOP! Do you ever just want to stop all of the craziness? Stop all of the stress that the holidays hold? Maybe it is because we’ve lost the true focus of what Christmas is all about.
Without Jesus, Christmas would not exist. Without that miraculous night more than 2,000 years ago, when our God put on flesh, and came down from heaven, born in the little town of Bethlehem all hope would be lost.
Do you want to find the joy that Christmas is supposed to be? I encourage you to take time to participate in Unwrap the Joy, a 31 day Advent Bible study I’ve written. Take a few minutes each day to read a special scripture passage and then take time to reflect on why this scripture is important. This Christmas, I challenge you to stop the craziness and embrace the joy that comes from a Christmas spent with eyes on the Lord. Download your FREE full length Advent study guide at the link below, and join me as we celebrate Jesus Christ during the month of December. He is the best gift you will ever receive.
