Merry Christmas Eve! Have you ever noticed how much more accepted it is to mention God in society today but you mention the name of Jesus and the mood quickly changes? In a book I read written by a celebrity, she kept saying “I pray to the god of my understanding”. That is what is so sad! It’s an accepted new age belief that “god is everything and everything is god”. Society has become so focused on not offending others that, to me, they have nothing to believe in or stand for. I feel that this has caused so many to try so hard to take Christ out of Christmas in so many ways. To me though, the joke is on them because the harder they try the more they are brought back to Jesus. It’s like the old saying that the more you try not to think about something the more you think about it. Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus. The two have become ingrainded over centuries. You can’t think Christmas without thinking about Christ, even if you are trying to leave Him out. I encourage you this Christmas to seek Jesus. If you are unsure or doubting who He is start with More than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell. He was an atheist who set out to prove that Jesus was just a man. “You will seek me and
find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13. Seek Him! He will give you something to believe in, something to stand for…
Also something interesting..Jesus was in a blended family…please read my previous blog post http://blendermom.me/jesus-was-from-a-blended-family a msg I copied from Jeremiah Wright Jr.
Merry Christmas blessings from my family to yours.
