“Keep Christ in Christmas”
You can be fighting out there to keep Christ in Christmas and lose sight of Him in your own heart.
Instead of concentrating on trying to force this godless world to ape a Christmas it does not understand, …
… let’s be occupied with being the fullness of Christ in this world.
If you are looking for Jesus in the secular, cultural Christmas, then you’re looking for Him in the wrong place.
Nothing can keep Christ out of Christmas if we strive to be the body of Christ this Christmas.
Keep Christmas in Christ.
As people who are IN CHRIST, how ought WE to be KEEPING CHRISTMAS?
Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
In other words, make EVERYTHING you do this Christmas be about Christ.
When the world meets people who really live out PHI 1:21, there is no way to keep Christ OUT of Christmas.
You know what you have in Christ.
Show it to somebody who needs it this Christmas season.
This Christmas, bring life to someone you find who is in the darkness of a situation of death.
This is how we keep Christmas in Christ.
By explaining to someone why Christ was born in Bethlehem.
Keep Christmas in Christ by setting somebody free from the condemnation they are living under.
This Christmas, let a hurting heart know how much God loves them.
Keep Christmas in Christ by sharing some wisdom you have in Christ.
