Do you have any fears at Christmas?
I don’t mean whether or not you don’t get someone the right present or you forgot to send someone a Christmas card.
I mean more serious fears. Fears similar to the ones I have. Here are some of the things I fear.
I fear that when I see a sign that says, “Happy Birthday, Jesus!!!” that even Christians are missing the “reason for the season.”
I fear that we have lost focus and made Christmas a big party.
I fear that we don’t remember that Christmas was a rescue mission.
I fear that we focus on the baby instead of the God-man.
I fear that we don’t remember that the Word became flesh.
I fear that we don’t remember that Christ gave up all of His rights to make us right.
I fear that we don’t look at our Christmas trees and see them pointing up to Christ.
I fear that we don’t look at our Christmas trees and see another tree.
I fear that as we gather with family that we don’t see that Christ gave us a bigger family.
I fear that as we gather in our homes that we don’t remember that Christ has gone to prepare another for us.
How about you? What do you fear this Christmas?
