Christmas with a Capital “C” – Act Now

This time of year there is controversy around Christmas. To say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”. To Celebrate Christmas or not. Not sharing your faith or even mention Christmas. Now those who do celebrate and believe in the Christmas session are in the minority. This is a sad thing.

I love this song and video

So this post is to talk about places we can help so that others can hear and experience true Christmas. Places to volunteer and to give your money so others can feel the love of Jesus in their lives. It is our actions that show the Love of God to those in this world. Let’s not hold back. No matter what we are going through there is someone who is worse off than us. Show others the same love you have received from God.

James 1:27 (KJV)

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Thomas Road Baptist Church has a great way they reach out… I love the heart of this Church. It is a church who loves people. Winning souls is their main focus. They are always reaching out. Christmas is no different…Help them reach out this year….

TRBC announces their Christmas Cares! This church-wide outreach effort unites us in purposefully taking the love of Christ into our communities this Christmas season.

There are so many more I could put here. Music can be an encouragement in life. Even when this session is hard for you remember the reason for the season and that because of Jesus you have hope in this life. Nothing you have gone through or are going through is too hard for the one who sent His Son for you.

John 3:16 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Even if you have lost a love one. We are not as those who have no hope…

1 Thessalonians 4:13 (AMP)

Now also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep [[a]in death], that you may not grieve [for them] as the rest do who have no hope [beyond the grave].

Make this Christmas a time of rejoicing & joy as this is what God intended it to be… MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL
