Rooted In Christ

December 12th, 2022

Colossians 2:1-12

When I was a child, my mother wore a pin on her coat during the month of December. It read, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” This month, although many are focused on the celebration of Christmas, few are rooted in Christ and focused on the true reason for the season. Those who have received the gift of Christ Jesus as Lord should be diligently focused on Him all year, but especially during these days of Advent when we remember in anticipation His first arrival and look forward to His second coming! 

It is easy to become distracted from the true reason for the season. Some are busy doing good, some are busy making magical moments, and others are focused on connecting with family and friends. These things can be good, but may we do them as people who are rooted in Christ Jesus allowing Him to lead us in all that we do. May every Christmas celebration and holiday tradition be an act of worship and service to the one whom we live for. His arrival was miraculous! His gift of salvation is by far the greatest gift ever given!
