Christmas best list . . .

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.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
