Christmas Cheer

Looking for Christmas cheer? Sadly, some turn to dangerous and self-destructive behaviors as they try to escape the stress and struggles of life. They think they will find some Christmas cheer in a bottle or a drug-induced buzz.

What they discover is nothing like the joy, peace and love that the Christ child came to bring. God sent his only Son so that we could experience real cheer at Christmas!

MP900309705[1]For me, real cheer comes at that moment when gathered believers raise their voices and candles singing about a silent and holy night when all is calm and all is bright. That truth, jumping off the lips of believers proclaiming Jesus as the Light of the world, fills my heart with unspeakable joy!

I need joy just like you do. So let’s turn away from the cheap imitations this year. Let’s stop looking for love in all the wrong places.

Let’s look to Jesus Christ for the gifts of grace he offers all who follow him!
