I will never forget the Christmas after I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. It felt like suddenly the whole world was celebrating the joy of Jesus with me.
Every store I shopped in became a worship opportunity and every coffee shop, a place to meditate on the wonder of the Incarnation. To me, all the stores that played Christmas Music became messengers of good news of God’s love for humanity.
Before that year, I knew the songs, felt Christmas cheer but I had no awareness of the very real power and awe of it.
Tradition is wonderful, personal revelation is life changing.
“But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.‘” LUKE 2:9 -10, THE PASSION TRANSLATION
