In other words, when we say that Santa and reindeer and mistletoe and snow are Christmas to us….are we settling for TOO LITTLE? After hearing God’s words through the prophets anew this year, I really think we are. Because, while fireplaces and the joy of family are nice, they don’t even BEGIN to compare to what Christmas really should be to us….what God promised Christmas would be. Amen.
So even when we – when you – get it right and think that Christmas is about what God was doing through that little baby born on Christmas morning, I hope these four stories remind you of just one more thing. Christmas is ALSO about God deciding to include US in God’s plan…even relying on US, people, to help implement God’s plan. When we go along, God can and WILL do amazing, miraculous, Christmas-like things.
Y’all, it’s time for us, God’s people, to dream some dreams. It’s time for us to see some visions. It’s time for us to move from an existence that can best be described using words like “darkness” and “despair” to an existence that can best be described using words like “bright” and “hopeful” and “amazing” and “new”. It’s time to start realizing that when we listen to and follow God’s will, anything, absolutely ANYTHING, is possible…even things beyond our wildest imagination.
