'Tis The Season...

November 27, 2005

        The Christmas song “Deck The Halls” says “‘Tis the season to be jolly…”  I agree. For most people, this is one of the most joyful times of the year. But it can also be one of the most stressful and lonely times of the year.

         “‘Tis the season…” Ecclesiastes 3:1--15 came to my mind—“To every thing there is a season…” What about this Christmas season?  

1.)     “‘Tis the season…” to be giving.  People will be giving gifts to people they love. As you make up your Christmas gift list, make sure Jesus is at the top. It is His birthday we celebrate during this season—He deserves your BEST gift.  

 (Acts 20:35 NIV)  In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"  

2.)     “‘Tis the season…” to be witnessing. What a great time to tell others about Jesus! Remember, Jesus is the reason for the season! Include a good gospel tract in the Christmas cards to send to your unsaved friends.  

 (Acts 22:15 NIV)  You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. 

NOT HAPPY HOILDAYS.  MERRY CHRISTMAS 

3.)      “‘Tis the season…” to be inviting. People are very open to attend church during the Christmas season. Let’s take advantage of the day. Remember, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year! What a great opportunity to get some of our unsaved friends and loved ones under the sound of the gospel. 

Christmas Program Dec 25 Jesus Birthday 

 (Mat 22:9 NIV)  Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.'

 (Luke 14:13 NIV)  But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,

4.)   “‘Tis the season…” to be joyful. “Joy to the world, the Lord has come!” Praise God, He came to save His people from their sins! It’s great to be saved!

        I hope your Christmas will reflect all that this season is about.

 (Rom 12:12 NIV)  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.

 (1 Th 5:16 NIV)  Be joyful always;
