Christians need to be making an impact in our country in five areas; physically, mentally, socially, spiritually and financially.
Today we celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. We honor his legacy and his majesty.
However, we must realize that there are those who despise and literally hate this day, not only in America but around the world.
That’s sad to me.
It’s sad because these are people who don’t know about Jesus Christ, the freedom he offers and eternal life.
We’re not making an impact on these people. We’ve got to leave church on Sunday mornings with the intent of impacting our culture spiritually.
Throughout this season we’ve heard non-believers say things like, “happy holidays” and “seasons greetings”.
We’ve heard on the news about the ignorance of those who place words of discredit beside manger scenes indicating that there was no such event that ever occurred.
I believe if Christians became a more formidable force and determined more than ever to make every person they meet and know become followers of Jesus Christ that we would once again turn this world upside down.
We’ve got to do better than we’re doing.
The church has become so complacent in the area of wanting to compel others to the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Don’t cop out by say, “Well not everyone wants to know about Jesus.”
While that may be true, it’s not for us to be selective in our sharing.
As you remember the purpose of this day, as you are creating memories with your family and friends, take time to commit yourself to make an impact on everyone you know and this time next year they will be making memories and celebrating along with you.
You can feel so much better next year as you celebrate knowing that you impacted so many lives spiritually.
That’s what I think about it.
