Lot of Glamor
Christmas season has a lot of glamor, lights, and sales. It seems that
everything is the “BEST PRICE OF THE YEAR”! with all the business
pointed to the last big push of the year.
We wonder what has happened to the simple message of hope. Do we need
to improve the Gospel message of Jesus Christ? Do we need to improve
that Jesus came to be a savior for all man kind? Jesus came to seek
and to save that which was lost.
Jesus was born in a simple setting, hidden from the world, kept safe
from a king that wanted to do away with anything or anyone that
threatened his throne.
Now Jesus wants to be our answer, our deliver, our comforter and our
...But we have our thrones (idols) or ideas that keep us going in
cycles that make us so we cannot see simply.
The gospel is not like “THE BEST PRICE OF THE YEAR”.
Jesus’ offer is the same since the day when he hung on that cross for
you and me. The gift of salvation cost Jesus everything, all that he
had, he gave. This gift is worth more than a king’s throne or ours.
I have heard salvation compared to a parachute that you hold tight
when you are in a plane that is going down.
Don’t wait until tomorrow, for we do not know what a day may hold.
The gospel is like a man who finds a treasure in a field, then he goes
and buries the treasure back in the field and sells all that he has to
buy that field.
Remember Jesus is the reason for the season, and his gift is for you.
