Many will attend Christmas programs in schools, churches, and other venues across the globe. I’m sure each will be different, with some sharing the Biblical Christmas story of God sending His Son, Jesus, to provide salvation and eternal life to all mankind.  Sadly, many will hear and see the Gospel presented through the Christmas story and yet their lives will be unchanged, continuing on the wide road to Hell.  May we pray with renewed purpose that as many see and hear the Good News this Christmas, their eyes will be opened, and they will repent, trust in Christ alone, and walk in newness of life.  It is also sad that many Christians will watch and hear the Christmas story again and again, while not living the Christmas story.  May we also pray with renewed purpose that we Christians will respond like the shepherds, praising God and proclaiming the Good News abroad.
