Christmas time is full of anticipation, expectation, and excitement. This is true for at least some folks, for others Christmas can be a time of sorrow, difficulty and pain.

Let me give to you 3 ways that everyone can have a great Christmas.

1. Don’t allow the nostalgia and hype of Christmas steal the real reason for Christmas. The real reason for Christmas is truly the reason for JOY. Jesus came in human flesh to seek and to save those which were lost. The JOY is that if you have accepted Christ as your Savior you have been freed from sin and have been reconciled to the Father.

2. Share the gospel. There are many who wish they had the financial means to buy the perfect gift for a family member, or friend, but because of the limits of funds they cannot. Though you may not be able to give a physical gift to someone, all of us can give the ULTIMATE gift of the Gospel.

3. Spend time worshiping God. Make and take the time to read the Christmas story with fresh eyes. Make it a priority to be in the house of God to worship with other believers. Do this by actively engaging your heart in the worship, think about the words as you sing the special songs of the Christmas season. Engage your heart as the Word is preached, put your self in the shoes of Mary, Joseph, and the Shepherd. Take time to enjoy the beauty and wonder that God became man so that man could go to be with God.
