Have You Been Counting the Days?
Have you been counting these days? We are actually in the twelve days of Christmas now. Epiphany is at the end of the twelve days. Our family tradition was to add the baby Jesus to the nativity scene on Christmas Eve and then wait twelve more days to add the Magi. This helped remind us that Christ is given to the Gentiles also.
Keeping Christ in Christmas is getting difficult these days. However, keeping our focus on the facts of our Savior’s birth, death, and resurrection is most important. Jesus is not only THE reason for the season, he has A reason for coming.
Have you had the opportunity to share with someone the reason Jesus came to all of us? Begin by simply sharing a cup of coffee or tea with them. Reflect Jesus’ love through unassuming acts of kindness. This may open the door to conversations where you can share God’s saving grace.
