Merry Christmas and other holiday greetings fill the air this time of year. On this Christmas day, those well wishes are expressed as we give gifts, open presents, and participate in other celebrations of Christmas. We may each have those personal or family traditions that mean a lot to us during this season, but we also need to be sure we are spreading the word!
We can begin to see God's glory in the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. As we receive this gift, we also need to spread the Good News. We cannot keep God's great gift of salvation and redemption to ourselves. It is good to have meaningful traditions that keep us centered on the true reason for the season. However, we also to be sure our greetings and celebrations are allowing others to see what God and His Son mean in our lives. We need to praise God, exalt Him, and welcome His glory throughout our lives and our communities. As our words, actions, and celebrations fill the air, we need to be sure they are also spreading the word - the Good News!
Celebrate by praising God and spread the word of God's glory!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son that I celebrate not only today, on Christmas, but throughout the year. Help my celebrations to fill the air and spread Your Good News. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
