Christmas is a lot of things to a lot of people. Cookies, midnight Mass, family traditions, or a budget deficit and a stressful reunion of relatives who otherwise don’t talk throughout the year. It might just be a reminder that the year is winding down. It might be a mile-marker or a reminder of the seat still empty at your dinner table. Whatever it is, it is something and I don’t know many people (read: anybody) who wake up December 26th oblivious to the day before. You’ll meet Christmas morning, evening, and the day after with some kind of belief in something that may or may not agree with the eternal Word.
Let it be a day you take stock of your mud and mind and meet your intervening Savior in the manger. Let the Word of God wash you anew (i.e., pick up your Bible and get with some believing buddies), and confront the things you think and believe that fundamentally oppose who He is and what He says. As long as we’re in this “present evil age,” there are weeds of unbelief in there somewhere. He is the Wonderful Counselor who can guide you through it. He is the Mighty God who can pull you out of it. He is the Eternal Father who won’t ever leave you behind. He is the Prince of Peace who can silence whatever storm is raging around or within you.
He is the Word made flesh. He’s here to walk you through it.
