The abbreviation, Xmas deletes the wrong letters. I prefer Christx–exalting the living Jesus! On Christx Day, remember God’s xtreme love in sending Emmanuel (God with us). Christx is a good time to show Jesus’ extravagant love to everyone.
O, the joy of Christx–the exhilaration of a daily relationship with the risen Jesus! Merry Christx. Let’s make it a lifestyle of xtreme love, not the “holiday shopping season.”
Christx is God’s forgiveness. Let the risen Jesus x-out your guilt and set you free. I love to celebrate Christx — to focus on the living Jesus without distractions. Christx: I’ve got Jesus; how could I want more?
Except for the first 2/3s of the name, it seems like the real meaning of Christ*mas was cancelled long ago. La Navidad, The Birth, is the Spanish name for Christmas.
Once Jesus was born in my heart, I could see beyond the traditions of Christmas. If not continually stirred up, faith in Christ fades, like an unattended camp fire.
The biblical events that inspired Christmas cause me to focus on the living Jesus! I love to think Jesus, talk Jesus, listen to Jesus, obey Jesus, worship Jesus — day and night.
