Good things experiencing Christmas in depth by Cliff Elmore As it appeared in the december Issue of the Iowa Friend no doubt the climate for the month of december As far As most of us Are concerned is Christmas a y. Sin let our childhood we have come to look upon Christmas Day As a Timo when at Church we read the account and discuss the Story of Jesus birth at Home we look Forward to family gatherings and Christmas meals at school or work we get Tun amp a to the holidays by special emphasis and work pertaining to the season which is approaching. With All this preparation going on year after year and All the different varieties of build up which precede the Christmas holidays i have always Felt somewhat dismayed and disappointed when the Day finally came and it seemed there was a letdown no final Topping off act that made the Day a Complete Success and something to look Back upon As a wonderful experience a giving strength and Hope for the Days ahead. Now we Are again approaching Christmas Day and can see the build up in Progress a and the question comes to us a Are we going to be disappointed or feel let Down again in speaking of this question i done to intend to say that everyone has this same experience but after listening to after Christmas conversations i feel that Many people have had similar experiences or at least have a feeling after Christmas is Over that something Isnit Complete. What is it that would leave us a Christian people followers of Christ a feeling this Way in thinking about this i asked myself one question a what does Christmas really mean to me a outside of the Church and Home most of the emphasis on Christmas is in the form of customs which originated from Pagan celebrations Etc. Many things that we do at Christmas time actually have very Little bearing on the real reason for Christmas a the birth of Christ. In a Christian Home the family knows Why we observe Christmas and of course would attempt to enlighten each other on its meaning. Also in the Church the meaning of Christmas is explained and taught to All who will attend. But even so we As individuals must have an answer to this question for ourselves. Christmas must mean something special to us personally if we Are going to enjoy the Observance of the Day or season. Lets go Back to the biblical account of Jesus birth and see if it does have a special meaning for you and me. All through the old testament there Are prophecies telling of the coming of a Saviour and scriptures Point to the fact that through this Saviour people could and would be saved from sin. And in Matthew 1 21. The Angel in explaining to Joseph about the circumstances of Mary a condition said that a son was to be born and they were to Call his name Jesus a for he shall save his people from their also in Luke 1 35 the Angel said a that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the son of others worshipped the new born babe and testified through the spirit of his purpose in being there and of his relationship As gods son. God had provided the Saviour As he promised. Up until this time the Law had prevailed but now Jesus was the fulfilment of that Law. He was and is the Saviour for you and for me. Gods Promise had been kept. You say we know All of that yes if we have read our Bible we do know it. But have we accepted gods gift have we believed it in our own personal life has gods love for us our individual self been manifested to us in such a Way that we too worship and rejoice As we observe the birthday of Christ what then would make us feel let Down and disappointed could it be that we Haven to opened our hearts and lives wide open we Haven to somehow accepted All that god has for us its a Little like this business of gifts at Christmas time. We probably be Happy unless we had both Given and received gift. With Christ we must also give and receive. If we do one without the other we done to feel that All is Complete. I can to find the words to Tell of gods love for each one of us but this i can Tell a if Vout la ask him to show you his love to help you to accept his salvation and to reveal himself to you that you ton May understand the truths concerning eternal life a i know Fie will do it in a Way that will be much More wonderful than any words i May have. Let us right now. Bow on our Knees in prayer and ask the ii Ord to forgive us our neglect. Let us ask that we May experience the fullness of his salvation through Jesus Christ so we May truly rejoice and Praise his name throughout every Day in the year until that time he Calls us to be with him. May god bless each and everyone with a Happy and wonderful experience this Christmas season
