As we come to the celebration of the birth in a manger of a Messiah King, each of us must look toward our own spiritual needs. Pie, and drink may well satisfy the physical. It is not the satisfaction the dusty soul seeks. It is a sweet well of cool water that flows and urges us to drink of the Well of Life. It is not great intellectual knowledge of the great things of man or even God, but the very person and presence of God. Some would well say restore the Christ in Christmas. Instead I think there is a greater need to restore Christ in Christians. This yearning after God has never completely died in any generation. There have always been some that have looked beyond the Santa Clause hats and grossly decorated trees and insisted on reading the story in the Bible of the reason for beginning and end of Christmas. Please my friends and loved ones, take time this week to read Luke Chapter 2 verses 1-20 for your own and perchance around that aforementioned tree, read it to the those you love and care for the most.
