Then It Came To Me,…

What’s A Christian to Do?”  It’s Christmas Time, Again!” Well, twelve months have passed. We have stepped further into this new millennium.  Time seems to be zooming past. New stuff is going out of style faster than ever. Selfishness seems pervasive.  “It’s all about Me” wants to upstage “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “I Will Trust in The Lord.”

Few people seem to want to receive sound advice, while the uninformed do their thing, parents, guardians, church folk, teachers, the elderly are expected to step aside, and then step in after the mess is made.

Children are crying for the attention of parents, or somebody.  Innocent babies are shuffled from one noncaring setting to another.  Many refuse to receive the Church as a center for ongoing spiritual enrichment and treatment.  These persons seem to have a “patch me up and let me go” attitude.

And all of this is just SOME of the stuff.  This is some of the stuff that creates the settings within which we must herald, “Peace On Earth, Good Will Toward Men?’

“What’s A Christian To Do?…”  Simple.  Stick with that which is timeless, unaltered and the absolutely sufficient Truth, the Word of God.  Over twenty-seven centuries ago, this Truth was foretold in prophecy; over twenty centuries ago, this Truth came and dwelt among us.

Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever.  The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

Luke 2:11 “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

“What’s A Christian to Do?  It’s Christmas Time, Again!”  We will share the Truth of God’s love.  We will reflect the Truth of God’s love.  This is what we, Christians, should do!!  Happy Birthday, Jesus!!
