It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

Every year it happens sooner and sooner. Perhaps it is what happens as you age. For some reason Christmas seems to arrive out of no where. Yes, you know it's coming. There is no way to not anticipate its arrival with the way Christmas is so commercialized. Right after summer the signs all begin to point to it. Once October is fully in swing the Christmas decorations start to pop up at every store. As the Thanksgiving parades passes through and then the calendar turns to December, you may start feeling as though you won't be ready for Christmas and will need more time. 

It is interesting really. We also know that Christ is coming. All the signs point to His return. It is getting closer and closer and still we may not be ready for Him. The Christmas season is a perfect time to reflect on Christ's imminent return. As you shop for the perfect gift and make all the preparations to celebrate Christ's birth, spend time preparing yourself and those you love for His return. If your loved ones don't know Christ, it is the perfect season to introduce them to Him. He's the best gift you can give your loved ones. The gift of knowing Christ as your Savior lasts forever and makes a big difference in daily life and in eternity.  Celebrate the birth of Christ, enjoy the season and keep looking up because before you know it the Reigning King will be returning. Hallelujah! 

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
