The Reason for the Season?

The Reason for the Season?

Hello friends,

I hope this special season finds you well and in good spirits. ūüôā

Although I have been unsuccessful in finding the time to blog in the past few weeks, I have had many things swirling around in this scattered brain of mine – many things that I have thought to write about. However . . .

I just want to talk about Jesus.

Jesus – the Light of the world. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Jesus – the Lamb of God. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Jesus –¬†the reason for the Christian’s hope. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Isn’t He supposed to be the FOCUS of our attention during these holidays (holy days)?

Could it be that¬†the “Reason¬†for the Season” is not the main attraction?

Perhaps¬†that . . . in the midst of all our partying and decorating and baking and frantic shopping and sending out¬†cards and¬†. . . could it be that¬†we¬†have¬†only given Him a “bit part”,¬†as opposed to making Him “center stage”? ¬†For, though¬†none of these things are wrong in and of themselves, are they making us think more about Him . . . or . . . are they¬†causing us to¬†think about Him less? ¬†I know that in the midst of all my busyness last week, I didn’t have nearly as much time to spend with the Lord. ¬†And since this season is supposed to be about celebrating His birth, that doesn’t feel quite right. ūüôā

Just something to ponder, as I myself am doing.

Stay tuned for more posts this week and next . . .

In His Love,

Trish

1 Pet. 3:15 ¬†“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect . . .”
