What would I wish for Christmas? That love would mean more. That God would come first and family second. That hearts would be tender to the needs of others – not just financial needs, but social and spiritual needs. That people would seek to pull together instead of tear apart. That Christ Jesus would be welcomed into every heart.
Yet, I know that evil still exist in the world and many don’t know the Love of God, so they are lost in a world of darkness. I wish it were not so, but that is the result of sin. For the most part, man does not accept the idea of sin, so he sees no need of a Savior. Yet without a Savior, sin keeps us buried in the darkness. We wallow in evil. We call evil good and good evil. We can’t help it because we can not see clearly. Oh, how sad! The saddest thing of all is that it’s so unnecessary. Because a Savior has come. A Savior has bleed and died for all this sin we wallow in. A Savior lives to give us victory over the darkness of this world. A Savior cries out to us, “This is the way, walk in it.” We don’t heed His voice and suffer loss. This breaks His heart. It really does.
Today, would you stop a moment and think what you would truly wish for Christmas? Is what you wish for out of your reach? Is it important? Is it lasting? Is it a Savior?
