know of a minister who was a medical doctor before he became a Christian. This is the first case I’ve known of, although
there surly are more. And here’s a difference it made in him, at Christmas time.
He noted how a business’s Christmas party can be one to
remember, or forget. It involves much drinking and other things considered fun and games at such get-togethers, and can
even turn naughty.
the date came due for his group to celebrate, he was asked whether he would be at the party. The doctor answered, "Oh,
yes! I’m going to bring my Bible, and we’re going to sing carols and have coffee and soft drinks and sweets,
and we’ll have a fine time.
Well, the doctor telling about his experience didn’t say it, but the word must have gotten around., and it ended up
that he stayed at home and had a Christian Christmas.
And so you see, each holiday season sees two kinds of Christmases; one where almost anything
goes, with hopes that no one remembers, the next morning. And the other kind that acknowledges what Christmas is supposed
to be; remembering that baby, born in a manger, who came to earth to give us a New Way to live, and a good way to die…with
Christ waiting to receive us to be with Him for the rest of eternity.
"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon
His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace"
Christmas be in His honor.
