FOURTH PLACE?

Children--Youth---4th-Place

Talking to the kids at the drop-in about Christmas, I get the sense they view this season much the same way that the majority of children in Winnipeg do.  They enjoy the events leading up to Christmas, such as putting up and decorating the tree.  They savor the atmosphere and spirit of everyone in the time surrounding Christmas day.  But their favourite part of Christmas is opening gifts.  Even though some only get one or two gifts, with one gift coming from a charitable organization, the anticipation and hope of a great gift is thrilling to them. Remember?  Second on the list is the special Christmas meal.  Third is getting together with family and spending quality time with them.  In fourth place is Jesus.  What??  Jesus only ranks fourth?  On the very day we celebrate His arrival in bodily form? 

Jesus should be first on everybody’s list, not only at Christmas, but all year round.  But let’s face it, the world views Jesus as just a swell guy who said some nice things and taught some good lessons.  One of the saddest verses in the Bible is John 1: 11, “He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him.”  We have to set the record straight and teach the truth of who Jesus truly is: The Son of God, who came from heaven and dwelt with us, then willingly laid down His life in our place so that we can be forgiven of our sins.

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will open the hearts of these little ones and pour in the truth.  Pray with passion that they will realize that no gift from parents, or organization, will ever compare to God’s greatest gift to humanity, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.  Hooray for Christmas!  God bless you all.
