Kids can’t wait to receive their special gifts for Christmas. We share cards, hampers, moments, and most importantly thank God for giving us Jesus Christ. It’s all about us being happy at Christmas.
- How about God?
- Do you have any gift for Him this Christmas?
- Would you want to make Him as happy as you would be, or even happier?
- Would you want more Joy in Heaven this Christmas?
Jesus said in Luke 15 “…there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away” v7 (NLT)
Again in the parable of the lost coin, Jesus said “..There is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents” (Luke 15:10, NLT)
These were Jesus’ words; The One we celebrate this Season. Every sinner we bring back home makes our Father happy. I can imagine how happy He would be this Christmas if you and I decide to win or bring more sinners home. You can surprise Him by bringing dozens of sinners home because if ONE brings joy, then how about dozens?
So Christmas is not about planning for our families, or meeting friends, or going for vacation. These are good but the core is about God’s love for humanity, and we can use this special season tell to the world about our message.
In the hymn “If to Christ our only King”, the writer said “Side by side we stand each day, Saved are we, but lost are they; They will come if we but dare speak a word backed up by prayer”
Your purpose on earth is to Serve God, and on top of the priority list is SOUL Winning. As you plan to enjoy your fantastic Christmas, don’t ignore God’s interest. God bless you
