Keep the Spirit of Christmas Alive in Your Hearts

Christmas Day is almost over! However, it is just the day that is over, not the true spirit of the day and the season. I am reminded of the words Charles Dickens had Scrooge say when the great redemptive change came over him--"I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year." 

We should all try to keep the spirit of Christmas alive in our hearts and lives the other 364 days of the year also. That should not be hard if we have the true spirit of Christmas dwelling within us, and that is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He came, and we celebrate His birth one day out of the year. However, He came to bring us joy and abundant life, and He didn't offer that to us for just one day, but for all eternity.

Merry CHRISTmas all year long!
