When it comes to Christmas, Christians have a wide range of beliefs. Some refuse to acknowledge Christmas altogether, others believe it ought to be celebrated to the fullest, and others still forego the mention of Christ in lieu of an overweight man with a beard, wearing a red suit, sneaking into people’s homes and leaving unrequited presents just for the fun of it.
Although we as believers can disagree about a great many things, from whether or not Jesus was born on Christmas, to what kind of animals were in the manger, to what ethnicity the wise men were, there are certain things all who name the name of Christ can agree upon, and in fact must agree upon.
We know that Jesus was born of a virgin, Christ the Lord the Savior of mankind. Above all, this is the most important component of our entire faith, and one we must agree upon. Whether you celebrate Christmas or you don’t, let the knowledge that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son fill you with joy, peace, and gratitude toward Him.
And to those of you who do celebrate Christmas, by all means, Merry Christmas. May Christ dwell in you!
Luke 2:10, “Then the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’”
With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
P.S. The Kindle version of 'Fundamental Doctrines' is up and live on Amazon, and for a limited time you can get it for free through the kindle lending program known as KDP Select. I will include the link, and by all means take advantage of the opportunity. If not, you will have to shell out a whole $3.99, the price of a cup of coffee, and I know I will likely get flack for putting a price on it, but then again, the minimal proceeds do go to a good cause. I did check the conversion, it is good, no weird code or anything. God bless.
