What’s Christmasy… or is it Christmassy? Oh whatever!

Hey it’s been a John the Baptist kind of Christmas!  Just check out the “Official” (accept no substitutes ) John the Baptist Christmas ornament.  It was handmade by a close friend in response to a comment I made recently in a sermon about there not being a John the Baptist ornamnet at Hallmark.  I totally dig the ornament and what it stands for – no to the crazy empty stuff of Christmas and yes to all God has done in Jesus and the changes that brings into our lives.  John the Baptist gets it right as far as getting ready for Christmas even though he’s not very Christmasy.  John isn’t about any of the external stuff as he simply points to Jesus.  Isn’t that what this time of the year is about?  The focus is on Gods gift of Jesus and His love, not matter how simple or elaborate our festivities.  We get so caught up in what we think Christmas should look like or feel like and we lose sight of what matters most, which is the fact that God gave His Son to give us life!  John the Baptiser spend all his time telling people about the arrival of Jesus and the changes to our world Jesus would make.  I pray we can do the same and spend our time getting ready for Jesus and telling everyone about Him!  That’s what I call Christmasy.. or is it Christmassy?  Enjoy the ornanment and the season!
