The Christmas Code - December 20, 2022

MAKING THE MOST OF CHRISTMAS


Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told to them.

Luke 2:20


How can you make the most of Christmas? For some it is all about decorating the house or tree, getting that special gift, seeing relatives, we're getting invited to that certain someone's party. But making the most of Christmas is so much more than any of these things.


Join the shepherds this year in making these next few days a time of “glorifying and praising God,” a time of celebrating all that Christmas is and means. God “inhabitants inhabits the praises of” of his people (Psalm 22: 3 KJV). This is where and when God feels at home--in the midst of your praise.


Note the shepherds “returned.” Where? To their homes and businesses. What an impact this must have had on those who knew them best. May God give you the grace to follow these shepherds and make the most of Christmas this year.


CODE WORD: JOY



Another of the code words of Advent is joy. Celebrate Christ above all other things this holiday season. Sing it -- “Joy to the world, the Lord has come!”



................................................................................................................................................


Lord, thank you for the joy only You can give. Let's celebrate your birth!

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

JOY - what a wonderful gift music is. This link to Chris Tomlin singing Joy To The World is the perfect way to start each morning as I count down to Christmas Day and into the New Year. JOY - my Savior was born, my Savior is with me always, my Savior is returning to right the wrong forevermore. JOY - today is a day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be joyful in it. Praise be to God. Amen.
