Will the Spirit Remain? Talking Heart2Heart

Spirit of Love

Will the Spirit of Love Remain Even After the Christmas Season?

 

Christmas day is a celebration of the King’s birth as well as his awesomeness. Many celebrate his birth by being thankful, loving, sharing, giving, and enjoying family gatherings. It’s the spirit of the Christmas season that makes it different from other celebrations. Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” The birth of Jesus was a gracious gift to the world, so we celebrate by giving gifts, decorating the tree with lights, putting up bells, and wreaths, playing Christmas Carols, and having parties to celebrate the occasion. It’s the most exciting time of the year with expectancy and excitement in the air as the Christmas day unfolds. It’s a time of witnessing the overwhelming joy on faces as you rejoice in that moment. Will the spirit remain? This spirit is a personal choice that only you can control.

Can you imagine the effect if the spirit of love continues throughout the year as if everyday is Christmas. The spirit of Christmas is derived from a gift of love (Jesus), and this is a gift that should be re-gifted over and over. When Jesus was born, the expectation was so electrifying that the news was world-wide. People traveled from near and far to see and bless the “Hope of Glory.” As LOVE entered the world through Jesus Christ, darkness and hate didn’t stand a chance. So when you share love all year you attack hate at the root.

Are you willing to keep the spirit going? Let it be said that you are guilty of giving, sharing, and loving others on purpose without any particular holiday in mind. You can make a difference in the lives of many by giving from the heart. John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give to you, that you live one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” As Jesus is the reason for every season, and he is worthy to be praised for bringing hope into the earth.
