I want you to know that this year when Christmas comes and goes, I’m going to really miss it. I think it’s because of the series we’re in now: Prelude – getting into the rhythm of Christmas. This season I’m trying to take time every day to pause, take a deep breath, and inhale and exhale God’s presence. I just want to come before Christ this season with reverence and with respect for the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6).
What I’m finding is this: if we take time to prepare for Christmas, we can experience God in a new, refreshing way that sticks with us all year long.
So, take time today to prepare yourself and to have an expectation to see, feel, and experience the Christ of Christmas who is with us in His spirit today and every day.
I said I was going to miss Christmas and be disappointed when the holiday is gone, but that’s not entirely true because I know that we can experience the joy of Christmas and the Christ of Christmas every day – that’s why He came.
