Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional December 25th – Have A Merry Christmas!

(What Christmas Really Means)

TO THE BIBLE: Luke 2:11
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

LET’S TALK
Christmas is a time when God’s children all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. But have you ever asked yourself what “C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S” means?

“C” means “Christ has come!” Christ is born and is here now!

“H” stands for “Hope.” We’re at rest now, because Christ has come, and our hope for a glorious life has been fulfilled.

“R” means “Righteousness!” There’s no need to struggle to please God with our own works of righteousness because He has made us the epitome of His own righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21).

“I” means “Inheritance!” An inheritance has been bestowed on us; we’re no longer poor. Rather, we’re joint-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).

“S” means “Salvation.” Salvation has been consummated since Christ has come.

“T” means “Tell the untold that Christ has come.” Tell someone about Jesus today!

“M” means “Ministry,” which refers to taking our place as ministers of reconciliation. And
what is the message of that ministry?

That’s what “A” stands for — “Acceptance!” We’re to tell the whole world that they’ve been forgiven and accepted by the Father, irrespective of their past. God is not counting their sins against them (2 Corinthians 5:19).

The final “S” refers to sonship. Now that we are accepted in Him, He has brought us into “sonship!” (1 John 3:2). This is what Christmas means.

So, as you celebrate today, think on these things, and your Christmas will be glorious. Merry Christmas!

Pray:
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the birth of Jesus Christ that has made it possible for me to be a partaker and a distributor of the divine life! I celebrate today because I understand what Christmas really means. Thank you for bringing me into oneness with you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
