Volume 10, Issue 49: Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing

As we draw near to the Christmas holiday season, I am excited about taking time away from work, going on vacation, traveling and having fun with extended family and friends. But what's gnawing at me in the midst of the excitement is that I don't want to get lost in the celebrations and the noise of the season. I want to be careful to keep the main thing the main thing.

Christmas isn't just the hip holiday of the year. It's a commemoration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour, the event that changed everything for us. Christ came on earth to redeem mankind, to pay the penalty for our sin and reunite us to God. Before the birth of Christ, we were headed for damnation. Now, we are not only redeemed, we have been given the privilege of abundant life.

"The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I've come that you may have life, and life in abundance," said Jesus. He came at Christmas, to translate us from a puny life to an abundant life. To save our souls. Change our eternal destination from hell to heaven. To break the curse, heal our diseases, right our wrongs, free the oppressed and bound, bring justice to the mistreated, mend our brokenness, restore our families and so much more.

That's the reason for this season. It's not about traveling and partying. Therefore as we do those things this season, I don't want to even for a moment forget the reason for the season. I want to keep communing with Jesus at the center of my heart, in the fore of my mind through every bit of the laughter and relaxing and celebrating. I want to keep the main thing the main thing.

Jesus is the reason for the season. As we celebrate this time with family and friends, let's remember to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, without whom there is no ultimate celebration.

 

For His Glory,

Lillian Chebosi
