I’m sure you’ve all either been involved in or heard or read discussions about keeping Christ in Christmas, but have you considered how we should actually keep Christ in Christmas?
As far as I’m concerned, we should keep Christ in Christmas, in exactly the same way as we should keep Christ in our everyday life, by having Christ’s presence in your daily life.
Keeping Christ in Christmas is more about the way you live your life than the things you say. i.e. It’s not about saying “Merry Christmas” rather than “happy Holidays“, or writing “Christmas” instead of “Xmas” or “Crimbo”, it’s about living your life in a Christ-like manner everyday.
Having said that, for me, I will always say “Merry Christmas” rather than “Happy Holidays” and write “Christmas” or “CHRISTmas” rather than “Xmas” or “Crimbo”, but at the end of the day those words mean nothing, because being a Christian is about actions and living for Christ.
Make this Christmas a true CHRISTmas this year by trying to live everyday in a Christ-like manner.
Remember the CHRIST in CHRISTmas!
