(Romans 8:37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
(Romans 8:38) For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
(Romans 8:39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Everyone wants to have a happy holiday season. Whatever your celebratory practice may be, you want the experience to be pleasurable. Let us not take our blessings for granted.
I am shocked that there are record breaking shopping statistics this holiday season in the retail market but our national economic status is that of a recession. This implies that there are many people without work. If you are not working then money is scarce. So how are you shopping like there is a surplus of jobs, money and wealth nationally?
Debt is dangerous. But people accumulate debt simply because they are motivated to give in order to have a pleasurable experience over the holidays. Consequently, some may even have such expectations on the receiving end.
The commercial appeal that this holiday maintains is assuredly designed for the sole purpose of removing Christ out of Christmas.
You decide which way you want to celebrate. However, you decide know this;
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
The season is destined for Joy when He is in His rightful place. Money does not determine this reality.
May your holiday season be forever inclusive of the presence of Christ.
