I can't believe it. Its 1:21 AM on December 26th. and Christmas has come and gone. It was a white Christmas, and even though it's over, I won't be blue. See, I think every day can be Christmas! How about you?
If Christmas is all about getting your favorite new little gadget, or going to lots of parties, decorating a tree, and baking cookies, then I can see why we'd be sad to see it end. After all, that is a lot of fun!
But, if we remember that on this day, in the City of David, a child was born! He was to be called the Wonderful Counselor, the Prince of Peace, the Mighty God. Immanuel: God with us! To Him was given all authority over heaven and earth, and His Kingdom would never end!
When the clock struck midnight on the actual day of His birth, Jesus didn't go away. As a matter of fact, He still lives today! So, at the end of the day, if the meaning of Christmas is the birth of our Savior, who came to take away the sins of the world, then all I can do each day is REJOICE!
If you had a "Blue Christmas," please remember this: God so loved the word, that He sent His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believed in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life! (John 3:16).
And that, my friends, is a reason to rejoice on any and every day of the year.
