2018 : Merry Christmas or Christmass
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.
1 Corinthians 4:20
May your Christmas, or Christ Mass be as He is – powerfully holy.
The beauty of a holy Christmass is that there is hidden away from the glitz, glamour, and gluttony a power to overcome one’s sins. If you hunger and thirst for such righteousness.
It is not a book published to make money while beginning an affair with another women moment of impurity. See: The Invisible Woman (2013) – IMDb
Rather a Christmass is God’s grace, God’s power, heaven-sent making a person into a saint by very real, honest and unhypocritical changes day by day.
A Christmass, in short, is full of life-transforming power.
This is not a Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol story-line of make-believe that creates an illusion than a man can change himself.
A Christmass is not invented by man, but a heavenly gift.
A Christmass is not a movie about how Charles Dickens sold-out truth for money. See: The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) – IMDb
No, no, a 1,000 times no.
A Christmass is God pushing His power through you as you surrender unto becoming a holy person.
Christmass is power to live a humbled cleaned-up life that powerfully can obey and trust a loving God.
Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness by resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name, including yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ,
To all God’s beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 1:1-7)
Next Year A Tree
The power of holiness is that in all things a disciple of Jesus is godly different from others. Whether in matters of the heart or outward adornment the Christian is made different by the power of God. Things have digressed deeper into sin so that now a decorated Evergreen tree is considered a symbol of Christmas and attacked by the secular culture at large.
So be it then…
I prepare my mind now for action come Christmass 2019.
Next year I shall meet the world, and the wordly, where they are at and give thanks unto the most loving God in a Christmass of 2019.
I too shall decorate an Evergreen Christmass (or replica) tree in holiness and power. Maybe I will share more on that next year.
Therefore prepare your minds for action; discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you when he is revealed.
Like obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires that you formerly had in ignorance. Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; for it is written,
“You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:13-16)

Peace, holy peace, peace the world and worldly know nothing about because they reject God’s transforming holiness.
It is a peace given but only to those whom God favors.
May you be blessed to be so favored by the Living God.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”
