Christmas — Simple, but . . .

Day 2229: Two choices – Merry Christmas or Merry Mas. Christmas with Christ or without Him – everyone’s choice!

Scripture:  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  Luke 2:11

Thoughts/questions: Christmas! This is the day we’ve chosen to set apart and recognize some thing or some One! Christmas is either true or false. Those were always the easiest test questions for me. Only two choices, no all of the above or attempting to write some acceptable answer evaluated by a subjective grader. T/F; right or wrong; black and white!

However, as easy as the answer is to give, living out whichever answer you choose is MUCH harder! Choose True – then what? Go on your merry (pun intended) way and live out your life inserting God when needed? Then you probably just guessed at your answer and didn’t really believe it completely!

No, if you choose true ALL of life should change! Christmas – truly the day when God reached down and offered His Son providing humanity with the only source of complete forgiveness and acceptance by Holy God that there could ever be!

Our response? Varies. Your response? Probably also varies. How about 2016 being a year where we say YES, it is TRUE, You are God and I will consistently serve You and seek You!

Yes, wise men (and women) still seek Him!!! Merry Christmas!!!

Suggested prayer: Jesus, You are truly God! May my life reflect that every day . . .
