Christmas Is an Invitation

Christmas is a lot of things. It's a time to get and give gifts, to decorate and to celebrate a year well-spent. But is that all Christmas is? Maybe at its heart, Christmas is nothing so much as an invitation. Maybe it's an invitation to do the right thing -- even when no one else is looking -- all year through? Perhaps Christmas is an invitation to take a leap of faith and see where it takes us? Maybe Christmas is an invitation to accept the gift God offers to us (His presence with us) and find a way to offer it to others, like millions of Christians have done down through the centuries? God came to earth as a tiny baby -- however it happened -- and grew into a man that lived, healed, loved and taught us to love. He touched the lepers and the sick and they were healed. He touched the broken, the forgotten, the unloved and they were changed; not by magic, but by the touch and presence of love itself. Christmas is an invitation to all of us to answer the same question Joseph had to answer (in the first Chapter of the Gospel of Matthew): "God is coming. What does that mean to me?" (Permalink)
