So What Did The Birth of Christ Mean to You?
Christmas, as a holiday, is now in the history books. The economics are a statistic (good, bad, or indifferent). Time to move on. To what? I don't want to sound like one of those angry fundamentalists who are screaming "Put Christ in Christmas!" until December 25 and then move on to another seasonal cause. But I do want to suggest that while the holiday is past, on this day after Christmas it might do well to stop and consider what happened the day after the original Christmas. The Son of God was a day old. He had been born and now had lived his first day. The point is that he was real and, some 33 years later, he would live his last day and die in order to provide redemption to humanity. Does that mean anything to you?
