It is hard not to lose sight of what it's all about. Even true believers are blinded by the change in the human spirit at this time of the year—“Why can't everyday be like Christmas?” Well, everyday is not like Christmas because everyday is unfortunately more in touch with reality. There is a reality behind Christmas, but it has little to do with trees and lights and gifts and “joy to the world.”
- It's all about one tree upon which a curse was hung for those who believe (Galatians 3:13-14).
- It's all about one light that delivers believers from spiritual darkness (John 8:12).
- It's all about one gift that brings eternal life to those who believe (John 3:16).
- It's all about one joy shared only by believers unto salvation (1 Peter 1:8-9).
Christmas is all about one reality that must be believed. It is not all about an image we would like to believe.
