As I got older and moved to the USA, when the Christmas season began, my first Christmas tree went up in time for Halloween. Christmas trees, Christmas music, gifts under the tree, holiday parties, and over eating became for me all a part of how I celebrated Christmas. Today, gifts are still not a big thing with me.
What’s big with me during the Christmas season, is the same thing that is big with me at any given time during the year: I want people to know that God is good. I want them to know that Jesus loves them. I want people to know that heaven and hell are both real! I am almost obsessed with getting the word out about building a relationship with a loving God, learning how to pray, receiving answers to prayer, and living a life filled with days of heaven on earth. It is my life’s mission and it is what drives me.
So, while we sit back with family members this Christmas, enjoying the eggnog and opening our gifts, let us also be more aware of giving THE GIFT OF KNOWING JESUS to those who have never heard and don’t believe. He’s not a God Who is mad with them, He is full of love! It’s our responsibility to share His love with others, so let’s share it as we have a very Merry Christmas!
