Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It sure helps you to stay in the Christmas Spirit!
The countdown is on….only 10 more days ‘til Christmas Eve. Are you getting stressed?! There’s still shopping to be done, baking of Christmas goodies, presents to be wrapped, programs to attend, plus a multitude of other Christmas activities to pack into these next few days. But let’s “STOP, in the name of the love!” as the song says. Are we enjoying this season and basking in the love of Jesus or are we so caught up in the busyness that we’re focusing on other things?
If we’ve lost our focus, then we’ve probably lost our Christmas spirit. And when we’ve lost our Christmas spirit, we’ll not have JOY. Of all times, we should exude joy during this season. We are to be celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. LOVE should permeate our hearts and lives…the love of Christ.
So…Have you lost your Christmas spirit? If so, may I suggest that you look for it in the pages of God’s Word? Deuteronomy 4:29 reminds us that “if you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Let’s challenge one another to seek the LORD with all of our heart and soul during this Christmas season. May we keep Jesus as our focal point, putting aside those things that really are not that important, so that we can concentrate on The Supreme One of importance…JESUS!
Invite Jesus into your heart and home and be filled with the genuine Christmas spirit.
