Sunday's Thought!

"A Colorful Nativity"

I have been reading in various news sources across the country interesting articles about canceling Christmas. My first response is "WHAT?" because you can't cancel Christmas. The articles went on to say that due to the "spikes" in the COVID-19 virus, several California cities and towns would be canceling their Christmas parades and celebrations. I read this back in September or October, and again this past week, so it made me wonder what all of the nonsense was really about. Is it an intent to cancel Christmas because someone in leadership doesn't like it and wants to push the envelope even further to do away with any acknowledgments of the Birth of Jesus Christ? Or, even get rid of Christianity entirely?

Whatever is going on, you cannot cancel Christmas. The "cancel culture" might think so but you cannot. No one can. While you might not be able to go shopping at the malls or department stores to buy gifts for your family and friends or have office parties, or parties in your home, or family dinners, but that's not what Christmas is all about anyway. Maybe it's time we quit focusing on all of that and discover the true meaning of Christmas. 

The true meaning of Christmas? Christmas is a day of celebration in the Christian life of the Birth of Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on earth, was crucified, and died on a cross to give us eternal life in heaven with Him. We do have to accept His forgiveness, despite what some may say, it's not an instant or automatic thing that we go directly to heaven at death, there are two options. You do or you don't. Pretty simple. To make a decision to ask Jesus into your heart and forgive you of your sins. To learn more, I recommend visiting Peace With God
