Don’t Forget The Meaning Of Christmas

She was tired of fighting her way down long aisles looking for a gift that had sold out days before. Her arms were full of bulky packages when the Elevator door opened. It was full. The occupants of the Elevator grudgingly tightened ranks to allow a small space for her and her load. As the doors closed she blurted out, “Whoever is responsible for this whole Christmas thing ought to be arrested, strung up, and shot!” A few others nodded their heads or grunted in agreement. Then, from somewhere in the back of the elevator came a single voice that said, “Don’t worry. They already crucified him.”

 

We’ve forgotten something in all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. We’ve forgotten that this is supposed to be all about one thing. We need to remember who is responsible for the whole Christmas thing, and it is all about how God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son so that who ever believes in Him might have eternal life. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? I think maybe that is how it was meant to be.
