Is This You?
So why, you may ask, is he pictured in a Christmas scene?
He is an enemy of the true and living God. He has not an iota of faith in Jesus Christ…read on, if you dare.
At this time of year, millions (billions?) of the enemies of God who lack faith in Christ decorate their lives and houses for Christmas. They believe that they are somehow being good religious people by paying a bit of lip service to God-singing carols, wishing each other a ‘Merry Christmas’, buying gifts for loved ones and even tossing a few bucks into S.A. kettles.
God is not pleased. Read Malachi and see what he thought of religious folk going through the religious motions.
“ 6And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
It doesn’t really matter to us if unbelievers get Christmas wrong-our duty is to get it right, to honor God and rejoice in the Salvation God set into motion for us one day in ‘the little town of Bethlehem.’
O Come, all ye faithful. Everyone else, have a nice day.
