I love to daily live in the Noel of Emmanuel — God with us — as reality, not religion! Here are some of my Christmas bests:
The best Christmas advice — “Wise men still seek Him.”
The best Christmas tree — the old rugged cross where Christ laid down His life for you & me.
The best Christmas light display — the risen Jesus, who is the Light of the world.
The best Christmas gift — Immanuel, “God with us.” Unwrap God’s presence. “Quench not the Spirit.”
The best Christmas verse — “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish . . .”
The best Christmas activity — “Come unto Me, all you who are weary & heavy laden.”
The best Christmas drinks — the Holy Spirit’s new wine & His living water.
The best Christmas merriment — “the joy of the Lord” — “joy unspeakable & full of glory.”
The best Christmas treat — “O, taste and see that the Lord is good.”
The best gift exchange — surrendering our sin & guilt for Christ’s forgiveness and freedom! “He shall save His people from their sins.”
Best Christmas message — Follow Immanuel, “God with us,” wherever He leads you. Journey daily with Jesus.
Because of Immanuel, God is with us, and therefore, we don’t need to talk about Him like He’s not in the room. Instead, we can interact with Him daily.
