This Christmas is gone
But unlike all the others…
This time was different for me
I loved the plots, the love, the food 🙂
But what moved me the most was a radio comic strip
The comic asked a simple yet…disturbingly deep question
What if…there was no Christmas because there was no Christ?
This may be a tad difficult for you to get if you believe that Santa Claus is the reason for the day
For to me…Christmas isn’t just a celebration of the baby in a manger
It’s a celebration of the life He lived…of the lives He touched
Of the person He was
It’s a celebration of a life well lived…a life that saw the fulfillment of its purpose
So what if there was no Christ…what if God did not reach out into the darkness we plunged into
And find a way to save us from ourselves?
What if there was no Christ…what if there was no redemption, no mercy, no grace
Just the thought of it turns me cold
Just think about it…
This Christmas is gone but there many more to come
For the many that will come Make merry…have a merry Christmas
Only next time have the understanding that you’re celebrating not only
The many gifts… the food…the love in family
But so much more
You will celebrate the life of the one true Christ
Celebrate your life too…you’ve lived another year
Celebrate the day that saw us herald redemption
Just think what if…
And give your next Christmas the chance to have it celebrated in truth
And if you already did…spread the word
Not everyone knows what Christmas is really about
And so I wish you many more Christmases to celebrate the birth and the life of a saiviour.
The beginning that set our lives in a different script.
