Stay focused This Christmas

Nothing deterred the wilderness preacher John the Baptist from losing his focus on Christ. From the beginning, John made clear that he was not the Messiah. His ministry was about pointing people to Christ the Lamb. When Jesus came to be baptized, John's said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!". Not even petty arguments, nor the fact that his followers left him to follow Jesus, caused him to lose focus. He simply said, "Christ must become greater; I must become less.".


At Christmas time, children and adults often ask, "What did you get for Christmas?". Unlike John the Baptist, how quickly we lose focus on Jesus, who came to give us salvation. Instead, we think of ourselves and the things we have or don't have. Ask yourself, "Am I full of joy because I have heard the Savior's voice and received His gifts?".


Today, stay focused on Christ the Lamb because there is one event coming that is greater than Christmas - the day the Messiah will return. Then all who have heard His voice and have faith in Him as the Savior will join with God's people, singing, "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory"! What a day that will be...


"He must become greater; I must become less." (John 3:30).


Let's Pray

Yahweh, help me to avoid getting caught up in my own interests and other distractions during this Christmas time. God, please guide me daily to stay focused on your Son and His amazing love, now and until He returns. In Christ name, Amen.
