Christmas is Not your Birthday
|Christmas is Not your Birthday|
|Length of Series||2|
Goal for this Series
to help people make Christmas about Christ and not ourselves.
Imagine going to someone's birthday party and bringing presents for everyone but the birthday boy. That's what we do on Christmas. We lose focus on Christ ans spend all our time and efforts making those people we love feel special and happy. We make Christmas about our family and friends and try to make them have a good time.
But we forget that this is Jesus' birthday. But what does Jesus want? He created the world, what does Jesus want? Matthew 25|40 shows that Jesus wants us to love God and love those around us. We Give God ourselves and that is a gift for Christmas.
Things to Consider
Christmas even in the church is very commercialized. It takes a lot to get people to think about Christmas in terms other than giving something, whether that is a check or a gift.
