GOD’S ONLY “forgotten” SON

Clarissa was quoting her Bible verse to her mother:  John 3:16, she sweetly proceeded, “God so loved the world that He gave His only “forgotten” Son….”  Isn’t it interesting how children can often make more profound statements by accident than we at times can make on purpose?

 

As Christians we are greatly bothered by our society’s ever advancing tendencies of commercializing Christ’s Birthday.  Sad to say this little girl’s words prove more true than humorous.  The Apostle Paul warned one of his churches not to hide the gospel.  He wrote, “if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.”  May God help you and me not to hide the good news concerning His Son.  Let’s not be guilty of concealing the gospel because of carelessness, neglect, apathy or busyness. The Scriptures define clearly for us what this gospel is (the good news that Jesus came to earth to die on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day). 

 

People tend to be more open to spiritual comments and literature during the Christmas season.  Let’s make time to share the good news of Him coming to our world to bring redemption. May our thoughts and attention go toward the Christ of Christmas and God’s heart for our world, more so than just family gatherings, gifts, or any other preoccupation that comes along with this busy season.

 

The hymn writer put it this way: “Take time to be holy the world rushes on.”  Let us be careful that in our homes, lives, and schedules Christ is not God’s “forgotten” Son.

 

Merry Christmas from all of us here at BBN Bible Institute! May your Christmas season and New Year be filled with an awesome awareness of Christ’s goodness and nearness.
