For some of you the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. For others this is the worst time of the year. For me, I’m just grateful we have another year.
The lyrics to this song, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, were written by a man who’s wife died when her dress caught on fire and his son was just shot in the Civil War. My spouse is still living and my son made it back from the war safely. No matter how bad things may seem, other than Job, our circumstances could always be worse.
One of my favorite Christmas songs is The First Noel. Tim Miner sings a rendition of it that includes this bonus message:
“I feel there’s something more I have to say…
what this occasion means to me.
It’s so much more than just a holiday…
cause on that day was born the King of Kings.”
That sums it up. As much as our “politically correct” friends want to sanitize Christ from our culture, they can’t. If they replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays”, they fail because the word, “Holiday” is a derivative of “Holy Day”. How can we be offended by their hoping we will enjoy our holy days?
If people want to replace B.C. and A. D. with B.C.E, their philosophy is still demolished. What defines our common era? The birth of Christ! They can’t explain the world or our existence apart from an understanding that Christ changed everything.
Here is a picture of my favorite Christmas card. It explains truth so well:
