Christmas in Living Color

English Audio Version

What does Christmas look like to you?

A silver tree lighted by a color wheel?

A jolly fat man dressed in red?

Or a family dinner on Christmas day, passing turkey slathered with gravy, and oh, the rolls and cranberry sauce!

Let’s see what Christmas was like two thousand years ago.

Luke 2:10 says:

“And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.’ ”

That first Christmas was a change from living in the dark to living in the light. It’s the reason we string our homes and trees with lighted ribbons of color. We remember the divine light of our Lord.

Luke 2:12 says:

“And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

That first Christmas was a neon sign along the roadside of life. Stop in! See what’s here! Jesus is born! His birth was designed to draw us to him.

Luke 2:13 says:

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God.”

The angels of the Lord, glowing in their heavenly beauty, lighting the hillside with the announcement of the King. They were the proof of the truth of Jesus’ divine birth.

Luke 14 says:

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

When we step into the light, we discover things that were hidden before. We see God’s glory. We understand the source of true peace. We desire good will for the people who live on this planet with us.

Let’s live Christmas in kaleidoscopic color. Let’s sparkle with the love of Jesus to everyone we meet.

Excerpt of the Day

Our lives might be a plethora of wiggly-niggly disarray, but when we’re growing in Jesus, God finds pleasure in us.
