For the love of Christ...

December 22, 2011

2 Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ controls us…

As I have said before, probably many times, I love Christmas and that is primarily because I love Christ. How can a believer love Christmas without thinking on and reflecting on their Savior? His main purpose for coming to earth as a helpless baby was of course the cross, and His willingness to die for the sins of many; that and His obedience to His Father. All of that and much more, is what is wrapped up in pretty paper each Christmas for us as believers. We get to reflect on our love for Him and what that love motivates us to do for Him at this time of year, every year. What a great gift, but one so easily squandered as we are busy with other things. How sad that we allow this season pass us by without even a thought for the Savior it represents. Like everything else in life we must be deliberate in our choices to think on Him, we must decide to make this special time of year completely reflect all He has done for us, and lastly we must teach our children our love for this wonderful Savior.
