Attended the evening service earlier today and it being so near to Christmas, there were lots of carols sung and also a video showing the birth of Jesus as well as Jerusalam/Bethlehem as it is today. It was an awesome video and made me want to go there too. Think would probably be in awe when I get there. What struck me most though was what was said at the pulpit about Christmas and its real significance. I think sometimes we get so caught up with the hustle and bustle of Christmas, the gift buying, the feasting etc that we miss the real meaning of Christmas. Of course, am not saying that gift buying is not good…i love shopping and receiving gifts too. But perhaps..Christmas is more than that. It should be a time for introspection and re-commiting too. Being thankful for the most precious gift i.e. the birth of Jesus. For the whole of today and yesterday too..the song ” Christmas isn’t Christmas..till it happens in your heart.” has been playing in my head. Can’t seem to get that tune out. So…what will you be doing this Christmas?
