All I Want For Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching. Only a few days away and we will be celebrating the birth of Christ Jesus. At least that should be the focus of the holiday. In the hustle and bustle that happens during this time, the holiday seems to have been overtaken with aspects of materialism and commercialism. It appears to be about the newest and shiniest electronics, automobiles, jewelry, toys, clothes, etc.

If we are not careful Jesus can get lost in it all.  We tend to rely on Christmas decorations and gifts to get us in the “Christmas spirit”. We create Christmas lists as personal checklists of desires ; anxiously anticipating if our requests are under the tree. I have not submitted any requests to any of my loved ones for Christmas. But I do have one request that I will submit to Jesus personally. All I want for Christmas is HIM. After all, as the saying goes, “Jesus really is the reason for the season.”
