Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something that I feel is important. After all, CHRISTmas will be within only a few days.
A relative on Facebook (FB) shared a YouTube video I thought I'd share with you. It's called, Santa vs Jesus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmS_s23TL1k.
To me, it was a wonderful video. Hopefully, you agree.
While Santa is discussed, some people might not like hearing about him. Truly, he's based upon St. Nick, who wanted to celebrate our Lord's birth, by giving gifts. Much like what we do to celebrate birthdays of those we love.
Even so, our Lord, Jesus Christ... is far more important. Just as you saw in the video, if you watched it.
No matter what we do, we must glorify God.
Just as we read, in 1 Corinthians 10:31, "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
Yes, we must do all to the glory of God!
Just as some of us do by celebrating Jesus' birth with so many people in the world.
CHRISTmas is when Jesus was born. That is why it is called... CHRISTmas!
While we do not know the actual date of Jesus' birth, I believe that it is important to celebrate His birth. Even though some people celebrate CHRISTmas without even looking to Him.
You should know that I truly celebrate His birth, every day of my life. I am truly thankful He was born.
But, I also believe that because December 25th is the date when the majority of people celebrate CHRISTmas, we need to take advantage of the name of the holiday celebration.
At this time, we can tell people about Jesus.
And, we can explain why it was so important for His birth.
After all, He was born to become our Saviour.
He came to earth to fulfill God the Father's plan of redemption for us.
This is why anyone who trusts in/believes upon our Lord, Jesus Christ will be saved.
Salvation is so very important.
Without salvation, a person will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God... with no chance of escape.
However, by gaining salvation, a person will spend eternity in Heaven... with Him!
If you haven't yet come to Christ, please do so today.
Tomorrow may be too late.
Until next time...
