Don't Wait Too Long

It's Christmas time! I have waited a bit longer this year, but I think we can say this week is Christmas time as we are in the final days leading up to our Sunday Christmas celebration. Of course every day all year long is a Christmas when those who are born into this world are reborn in Christ Jesus and saved. Many live each day thinking that surely they have one more day to make that decision to accept Jesus as Lord. Every Christmas should be a reminder that like those people long ago looking for Messiah, the day will come upon us quickly even after hundreds of years of warning.

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. (1 Th 5:2)

Yes, we do know, but there are those who may not and so we go on spouting the good news of Jesus to any who will hear. We do not want anyone to be eternally like the person who wakes up on December 26th only to realize that he has missed Christmas entirely. Somehow the season slipped by him one day at time. There will come a time for the inattentive that the last Christmas he missed was the last one he will never see. Our Lord is not willing that any should be lost, and we have a great opportunity to help Him not lose any of His lost sheep.

Have a merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus!
