Merry Christmas NOT Happy Holidays

“Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. The one who believes in him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. The one who believes in the Son has eternal life……The one who rejects the Son will not see life, but God’s wrath remains on him.” John 3:14-16, 18, 36 NET


Jesus must be lifted up for men to believe in Him if they would pass the judgment to come. It is every Christian’s duty, the mission, to fulfill the Great Commission, which is the sharing of the gospel unto salvation, symbolized by baptism, and the teaching unto obedience of everything Jesus has commanded. If people don’t come to Jesus for salvation, then they remain condemned before God. There is no other way for people to have peace with God besides the Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas celebrates God’s grace coming to earth to save us. Christians must speak His Name now more than ever. While most despise God and detest His Name as evidenced by the new rhetoric this time of year, Happy Holidays, Christians must resist compliance with the pagan culture and speak of Christ beginning with the words, Merry Christmas. Believing in Jesus, evidenced by obedience to Jesus, is God’s requirement for everyone everywhere. Those who are faithful to the end will receive His pardon for sin and be welcomed into eternal dwelling places where life abundant remains forever. Those who reject Jesus by their thoughts, words, and deeds will be condemned by God and cast away from His presence forever into eternal torment and suffering. Let us love God and man by sharing Jesus with people until all people are reconciled to God through Jesus the Savior.
