Christmas is an annual reminder that there is a much better way of living than just selfish, sordid existence. This better way is always highly seasoned with the unforgettable little things in life, . . . like crunching down on a delicious apple, or reading and crying over a good book, or doing something nice for somebody else. These are the things that make life worthwhile, but you dear people add one more teaspoon of seasoning and that is loving one another in the old-fashioned way.
You show understanding more than any other group of Christians I know anything about. You have compassion. You aren’t afraid to uproot the negative, visionless paralysis of prudery, to let the sun shine on the beautiful blossom of positivism.
No wonder this is the most wonderful time of the year for us. It is a happy time because of your affection, generosity, prayer, consideration and encouragement to each other.
We’re alive in gratitude to God and you. . . in service to God and you. . . and in love with God and you. Thus may He bless us forever.
WHAT IS THE MESSAGE AT CHRISTMAS TIME?
It is about Jesus Christ. . .
…Who came to an unprepared manger that we might go to a prepared mansion,
…Who became sin that we might be made saints,
…Who wept in Gethsemane that we might be forgiven forever,
…Who took the cup of suffering that we might drink the cup of salvation,
…Who bore a cross that we might wear a crown,
…Who was weary that we might have the Bread of Life,
…Who thirsted that we might have the water of life,
…Who was clothed in scarlet that we might be clothed in white,
…Who walked the shores of Galilee that we might walk the streets of glory.
ISN’T JESUS CHRIST WONDERFUL?
