Giving Christmas to Your Family
Melvin M Newland, Minister at Central Christian, Brownsville, TX, preached a sermon on this topic and I’d like to share a little of it with you.
“It’s Christmas time, & Lucy comes in where Charlie Brown is standing & says, Merry Christmas Charlie Brown. Tis the season of peace on earth & & good will toward men. Therefore, I suggest we forget all our differences & love one another.”
“Charlie Brown, whose face lights up at this, says, that’s wonderful, Lucy. I’m so glad you said that. But tell me, do we have to love each other only at this season of the year? Why can’t we love each other all year long? Lucy retorts, what are you a fanatic or something?”
“If we really get serious about Christmas, it seems that we’re branded by the world as some kind of fanatic. Yet, Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth, good will toward men.”
Yesterday, a man at Popeye’s was painting Christmas holly on the window and was real jolly and said, happy holidays, to which I replied MERRY CHRISTMAS. Many employees are afraid to say Merry Christmas, this is so sad. I see it on face book, I see it on cards, and I even refused to buy gift cards for Veterans this week with it on it. Of, course; they quickly came up with one without it.
Folks, the ole song says “Stand up stand up for Jesus, ye soldier’s of the cross, lift high his royal banner, you will not suffer loss.” A song I sing “This world is dying for the want of someone to tell them of our Savior’s Matchless love…”
What greater time than Christmas to share the love of Jesus when everyone is in a good mood, smiling and sharing. We have the gift of Christ in our heart, this gift is for anyone that will call upon the name of Jesus, repent, confess their sins, and receive Christ.
Rejoice with the angels when someone receives the Lord, what greater joy can one have than to win a soul for Jesus.
“If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9
