Every now and then the Christmas spirit just isn’t there. Fortunately, for mankind the birth of Christ did not depend on being in the mood. The birth of God’s Son happened when the Heavenly Father decided it was time. He sent Gabriel to Mary, Elizabeth and Zacharias. He sent a host of angels to the shepherds. Everything divine and those devout were ready. However, mankind was not ready for the Lord God to walk among them. It is likely people have not changed much since then and still are not willing to receive Him. However, if somebody were willing to be ready, look to the example of those present when Jesus was born.
1. Each one desiring Christ will have done their own personal preparation. They were not perfect, but they were perfectly dedicated in their walk with God. As a couple, individual, young, or old, they were doing what they should. They were where they needed to be. See Luke 1:6; 2:28-29.
2. They followed the example of Christ before he was born. (Keep in mind that Jesus is the only person that existed before He was born.) He divested Himself of divine privileges and lived within the confines of what it was to be a human. See Hebrews 2: 7 – 11.
3. They made the meaning of Christmas last beyond paper tearing and a great meal. They grasp Christmas as a majestic experience to have and keep. Angels, dreams, songs, and prayers are intensely real and purposeful. They see the cradle and the cross directly connected. If not, the incarnation of Baby Jesus would be insignificant. There is something and Someone to hold to. See Hebrews 9: 15, 16 and Luke 2: 17 – 20.
4. So, Jesus gave of Himself – the Perfect Gift. clothes, boots, jewelry, cookware, dolls, and games and a thousand other things are supposed to reflect Jesus. Giving and selflessness is the Christmas way. Today in our world let better gifts be given that really do reflect Christ. Give a heritage of freedom and honor. Let there be a strong America that still trusts in God. Let there be a clear pattern of right and wrong. Let there be a caring comradeship.
The birth of Christ did not just happen. It was planned thousands and thousands of years ahead of time. Human history moved toward Baby Jesus’ entry into this world. Now it is time for people to move toward Jesus.
