What thoughts race through our minds as we consider Christmas 2013? It came up rather quickly after Thanksgiving!

Lots of deals make the gifting process easier for some. Vacation for students is always welcome. Now Duck Dynasty is creating a Christmas CD! Christmas trees, lights, goodies and Santa seem to fill our homes and our online time rather quickly.

What about Jesus Christ? For many, the "reason for the season" is no better than a rusty icon - a cause who is given an absent-minded salute, as we rush on to our pragmatic celebrations.

For others, any connection with Christ seems odious. Who has time for fabled miracles when Santa more than adequately fills that role? Better to be in control of the surprises than be surprised by joy.

Despite our efforts to switch "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Holidays" and to erase religious sentiment from the public square, there is one place that no one can escape Jesus Christ. In time and history.

Yes, Jesus did come as a humble baby two millenia ago. God became man. In that humiliation he brought mankind's salvation. His perfect life, his substitutionary death and his powerful resurrection granted man something most desperately needed.

Today, each lonely soul, each tormented heart, each wicked sinner can find joy in the God who is ever near to man. We hope that your Christmas will not stop with just jolly cheer with friends and family, but that it will find its true rest and comfort in Jesus Christ.

This very Jesus is coming back again. Make peace with your God today. Enjoy your Christmas!
