Christmas. To celebrate or to not celebrate.
At one end of the spectrum how can one celebrate Christmas without Christ being in their heart? In other words, many people celebrate Christmas and don’t believe in Christ. While on the other end there are many Christians who don’t celebrate Christmas at all.
Is either one of these two scenarios more right than the other? How about the Christians who goes all out during Christmas? Is buying gifts, singing Christmas carols, and decorating Christmas trees celebrating Christ?
(1 Corinthians 11:23-26) For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
From this scripture one can summarize that Christ would want us to celebrate His death while the essence of Christmas is celebrating His birth. What you think?
