We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. John 9:4 ESV Have you ever considered this statement/Bible verse? Jesus told us that we’re supposed to work the work of our Heavenly Father,. If we’re not working and doing what we can to complete the great commission. Are we truly doing what we’ve been told to do.
The great commission tells us that we are supposed to spread the word through the entire world. But if we’re not reading the Bible, if we’re not sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, how are we doing what He told us He wanted us to do. So as we’re going into another Christmas, Jesus Christ birthday, we know that we’re one year closer to either Jesus Christ returning to Earth or another birthday. Every birthday we have draws us closer to the end of our life. There are some that say that we should never celebrate birthdays, we should not celebrate Christmas because it’s looking back on the past. However, that is opposite of what we’re told to do in the Bible.
You can see this in the Bible verse that follows: So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12 ESV So if we number our days and we grow our wisdom but we’re not doing what we were told, spreading the word, are we truly gaining wisdom for God or are we selfishly just gaining wisdom for ourselves. This is why it’s so important to celebrate our birthdays and celebrating Jesus’s birthday on Christmas, the true meaning of the day.
A lot of people say that Christmas is not actually anything having to do with Jesus Christ himself. They’ll say Christmas was created to disguise the satanic rituals and pagan holidays of the past. There are a lot of these celebrations from the past that they claim were used to continue to celebrate and cover up and being disguised as Christmas. When studying these “holidays” they had nothing to do with Christmas or Christ. These celebrations had to do with the gods of the past like Saturn and others that people liked to worship. They weren’t set around dates on Christmas, sometimes close but Christmas has always been a date all to his self.
These festivals usually followed and were around the winter solstice. All of this stuff is pagan beliefs and worship that had nothing to do with Christmas. After all no matter how much they try to cover it up always remember the first part of the word Christmas, it’s Christ. Some of these things that they claim are celebrations and festivals that started after anybody celebrated the first Christmas itself. Honestly they’re still trying to cover stuff up. That’s why they call it Xmas now and happy holidays they don’t want anything to do with the word Christ.
This is why it is so important to to do those things that we’re told in the Bible just like in the Bible verse that follows: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV When we pray we are depending on God. We are saying take this, we trust Him, we give it to Him this is yours Lord. This is how we are able to create that relationship that we are told we need to have with God and Jesus Christ. Without this relationship we will never know the Holy Spirit.
This relationship creates the connection we see in the following verse: And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:15-17 ESV
Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:20 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, give me the strength to do those things that you want us to me to do. Guide me in all of the words that we need to see and give me the peace and understanding to always do those things you want me to do. In Jesus Name Amen
