Living in Christ provides the freedom to celebrate this holiday season.
He is the Captain of our soul. Fear of people, viruses, and challenging times can distract us from a relationship with Him. In extreme forms, fear can make us afraid to celebrate. Far from this is the fear of God which includes respect, reverence, and trust, which is liberating. Together with our families, let us work on fearing the Lord, instead of giving into destructive anxiety.
We all wish for our families to be strong. Families ultimately matter a great deal to us. Whether it be our spouses, children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, in-laws or other extended family members and friends, the holidays remind us how much these relationships matter. Maybe more importantly, when we are isolated from our family, the holidays are a very sore reminder of how central our family and friends are to our lives.
What does it mean to celebrate these Holidays with a Christian focus? Here is our goal: let’s grow in the sense of what it means to be liberated in the freedom the only Jesus Christ can bring
