If we are going to honor God, let us not be selective in the days we choose to do that. Our Christ is worthy of praise at any given moment. Must we then wait for a day, whose origin [is Pagan] does not have anything to do with the righteous God we serve to say thank you LORD; we give you praise and honor; you are our God and blessed Lord? We must not forget that Satan rival God. And he will do all he can to mislead, persuade people to follow his corrupt path [even if out of ignorance]. But our God is a God of infinite wisdom. So we seek him, his teachings, his truth, for answers in the way we ought to honor him. The Bible tells us that we should serve only the One true God, the living, faithful God, and that we should not add or abstract from the word of God (Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:30 – 32; Revelation 22:18). We must oblige to the word of God, and that is final. Let us not can caught up in everyone’s teachings if they do not align with God’s. Seek truth and you will find it in the word of God. Leave the lies alone!
Christmas is not mention anywhere in the Bible. Then why are we so quick to associate it with Christ? Must we then carry the maladies of Babel and at the same time honor God? It should not be this way. We must do everything to not tarnish the birth and resurrection of Christ. If there is only a hint of Paganism in the celebration, then we should abstain from it. And we should ask ourselves are we pleasing the God we love or his rival the devil by partaking in such a custom rooted in wickedness?
Many associate this day with disorder, drunkenness, vile behaviors that is distant from godliness. Would we align ungodliness with God? God forbid. We should endeavor to celebrate Christ every day. And instead refrain from clustering the churches on this one [lonely] day as a means of honoring God. We should as well take pride in humility, not seeking our own wisdom so as to not deface the importance of the word of God. Let us seek God’s grace and mercy that our days may be meaningful and wise upon this earth. Every day should be a remembrance of the glory of God and the righteous power he has bestowed upon us because of his anointed Son, Christ Jesus. So let us live in the glory of God, as adopted children of the blessed blood line of our father Abraham who please the heart of God.
Let it be that you do not deny yourselves the truth, the word of God. For in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1). That he gave his only begotten Son to die on the Cross of Salvation, so that we may live, and live abundantly. Let us praise God in his holiness on every day, rejoicing in the anointed Son of God, the Christ, the foundation, the rock upon the mount of Zion. Let us remember the love of God. And that we ought to love God with all our heart and soul. If we rejoice in Christ and we hate our brothers and sisters, then we rejoice in vain. For with pure hearts we must rejoice in the Lord. With a kind and forgiving spirit we must rejoice in the LORD. Let it be that your hearts are not full with the bitterness of guile in your rejoicing. Let it be that your tongues are not full with the scorn of darkness. Let it be that you are not the drunken scum of this earth on any day [not only this day] of rejoicing. Remember those with little faith and dwindling hope as we seek to please God. Remember the suffering, the poor, and the needy. Remember those who are desolate, those who are dying of hunger. Remember that we celebrate God with our love for others. Remember this, remember this says my Lord. For in so doing, my death on the Cross will not be in vain. Remember my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Praise him without end. For the kingdom of God is in his hand. Bless my Lord and my God, for all eternity. Amen.
