Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:32
Have you ever stopped to think about WHO we are giving thanks to at Thanks giving? Well, if some of you don’t know who we’re giving thanks to, let me set the record straight…
WE’RE GIVING THANKS TO GOD FOR ALL THE MANY BLESSINGS HE HAS GIVEN US!!! Most of all we’re giving thanks to God for what His Son did for us at Calvary.
Now, let’s deal with Christmas.
I want you to know that I am NOT politically correct when it comes to Christmas. I’m not a politician and I’m not one of the Hollywood elite. I don’t have much money. So basically, I don’t have anything to lose. Even my life is not my own, it belongs to God. So, I’ll be calling this the Christmas season and the holiday I celebrate is Christmas… (notice the emphasis!?!)
Christmas is the Christians’ holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. If you ask people, including Christians, about the true meaning of Christmas, they may include family, friends, and love. But, Christmas is ALL ABOUT the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. It appears that certain politicians would like to take Christ out of this season. No more nativity scenes on public grounds; after all, we are no longer considered a ‘Christian Nation’… That’s a bunch of hogwash!!! I believe this IS still a Christian Nation. Just because some politician and Hollywood say it’s not doesn’t mean it’s true. They want to take the name “Christmas” away because they’re worried about offending others. That, too, is a bunch of hogwash!
Honestly, if you’re offended by my stance on Christmas or you don’t like it, I DON’T CARE… don’t read my blog!
So in closing, I call all Christians to arms (LOL). Everyone that would, put a nativity scene in your yard where it can be seen. Don’t say “Happy Holidays,”… say “Merry Christmas. ” And be sure to emphasis Jesus Christ this season (and make the haters lose a little sleep!)
That being said… Merry CHRISTmas to all, and to all a good night!
Until next time…
