There is much noise and distraction in our world today. So much so that it often makes it difficult for us to concentrate on the long term mission as Christians. We live in a restless world. Our souls are meant for the never changing kingdom of Heaven, only because of the enjoyment of living in eternal peace with God, of course. Thanks be to God to sacrificing to us his only Son, our Lord Jesus Christ whose birth we celebrate on December 25th. Christmas is often decorated with unnecessary worldliness so it’s difficult to focus on the true meaning of the holiday. Christmas is to put it plainly, about the greatest gift Jesus Christ. We often imagine receiving an extravagant amount of gifts on Christmas, and that includes some Christians. Like previously mentioned though, this world is restless. If we want to battle against that as Christ’s warriors, we must return to the holiday’s true meaning. We must remember Jesus was born in a manger, and he was poor. It’s our mission during the Holiday season to put Christ back in Christmas. The world tells us we need this, or that latest, next big thing but we already have Christ. Our mission is to proclaim the saving news of the savior.
