Let’s reverse Xmas to Christx

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.

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
