Soon enough all of the decorations will be gone. But while another Christmas Season will be gone, Christmas must never end. It must not because it is all about Jesus helping us to live at home and at work. If we refuse to lose sight of Him, we will walk with a new hope and a new joy and that will remind each and every one of us that Jesus Christ is alive and in this world.
There is no doubt that some of us will go away from this Christmas Season and land in some “Egypt” where our faith will be tested. Maybe it will be a great disappointment, a job we didn’t get, maybe it will be a love that is rejected, may be it will be sickness, some disease that will not go away. Or maybe, we will just find ourselves bored with the way life is. Life has its way of sometimes coming down hard on us to the point we begin to wonder, “Where is God anyway?”
That’s when we will need to remember Christmas. We’ll need to remember that Christmas tells us that where He is, is where we are also. We are not forgotten. We are not alone.
In the middle of difficult, trying moments, we will need to remember Bethlehem and that God has come. We must never, ever give up on that – we must never, ever lose hold of that. We must hold on to it with every ounce of faith we have in us because that is what will keep us going on and on. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and never lose heart.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to You and Yours!
