Christmas Reflections



 

Reflecting on Christmas, my mind moves across all the expectations we have about the season. And this song came to mind - "So this is Christmas and what have you done? The anxieties around what we plan to do and accomplish since it's tied to the end of the year with the new year approaching. The anxiety about gift giving and receiving amidst all the festivities. But have we paused to ask what we’ve accomplished for the Lord?


Have we paused to ask if we’ve listened to His voice? Have we considered who we could have a blessing to? In essence, if we are in his will? Each day and season bring opportunities for us to shine our light and be the salt of the earth. Do we even think about that? Do we fret only about what we think we deserve or need and not about what God wants from us?

Let this season bring your faith journey up.  Add to your faith this season. Don't be where you were yesterday.  It isn’t about perfection, but it is about striving to attain the highest calling. As Paul wrote in Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV) – “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Again, Peter writes in 2 Peter 1:5-8 (KJV) “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.


Just make sure you are adding to your faith and not at a standstill. As you keep adding, that is when you will lack nothing. As it is you work through adding with perseverance and as you are adding, that is when you lack nothing - lack comes when we stop adding. James 1:4 New King James Version (NKJV) says “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
