Resentment Towards Christmas by yommyuk: 4:21pm On Dec 24, 2016
Look around you. While many may be enjoying the festivities of Christmas, some are still holding on to bitterness and disdain. But don’t be surprised—the problem isn’t the season; it’s the Saviour. Our need for salvation reminds us of our own shortcomings and inability to redeem ourselves.

This is not the first time that Jesus stirred up antagonism in someone’s heart. Herod was troubled when he heard that the magi were looking for the King of the Jews. When they didn’t return to report the location of the Christ child, he became enraged and slaughtered all the male children in Bethlehem who were two years of age and under (Matt. 2:16).

What is it about Jesus that causes some people to feel such hostility? Herod’s fury was fuelled by his desire for power and control. He didn’t want another king, no matter how small, to dethrone him. People today scorn the celebration of Christ’s birth for the same reason—they don’t want anyone else ruling their life.
Romans 1:18 says that people who reject Jesus Christ have suppressed the truth. The Lord pointed out that those who fear their deeds will be exposed as evil won’t come to the Light (John 3:19-20). However, we should never assume that salvation is impossible for someone who is hostile to Jesus. After all, the apostle Paul was an aggressive persecutor of the church until his conversion.

, people who resent Christianity and Christmas may seem unreachable to us. But remember: No one is beyond the reach of Jesus.


John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth


IT IS WELL. MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE. GOD BLESS wink
