I have noticed many approaches and thoughts across the web about Christmas. I have scanned many blogs and articles concerning this season and how it is celebrated. One perspective that most catches my attention is that opines we should not be celebrating it.
According to this position, it is too commercial. It takes all meaning from the focus of the Savior’s birth – His incarnation. Of course, there is some truth to this. But of all the tinsel and glitter, the pagan background of the time of year. The buying and selling, the giving and taking. The secularism of partying, pomp, and ceremony of “wassailing” the imbibing of holiday “spirits” to make the season bright.
All this makes for quite a large package with glittering lights, and much noise added.
But what if we, in the midst of it all, unwrap that large box to look inside? Do we find it empty? Absolutely not! We find eternity Himself inside, waiting to greet us! This Savior, this King of Glory, comes rushing into our souls to inhabit our lives.
How many, looking inside, suddenly find such a life standing up to welcome them quite unexpectedly as might happen the way this following video demonstrates.
Please watch and enjoy.

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Psalm 22:3
