Does the love of Jesus shine in our words and ways while preparing and planning for a Merry Christmas Day? Are we celebrating the love of Christ by spreading joy all around or giving in to commercialism and ways of the world where the real reason for the season is not to be found? Do we cower in fear - choosing to sit safely on the fence, refusing to stand up for Jesus when times get tense? Have we lost the joy and hope given on that silent, holy night when Jesus came and all was calm and bright? Will we pray and prepare for Christmas 2018 to be centered on Jesus’ love, with peace and promise of eternal celebrations when we are called to heaven above? If we will embrace and share the love of Jesus, then we can celebrate Christmas every day of the year. May this story spark fires to humble hardened hearts and encourage lukewarm Christians to rise up and shift to forward gear! If we will love and if we will pray, Christmas can teach the world to sing in harmony and live by God’s will and way. Then, all His children can celebrate a Merry Christmas Day!
Remembering a song titled Love of Jesus in Granddaddy’s hymnal, I pulled it from my journal and read the precious promise with teardrops falling on the yellowed page. Love of Jesus is the greatest give we can give and receive in this sacred season when what the world needs NOW is Love sweet Love! Read the song, make up a tune and sing the song, internalize the meaning of the song, and feel the love of Jesus make Christmasblues or burdens be gone!
LOVE OF JESUS
