Has Christmas Lost Its Meaning?

“Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting…” (Is. 1:13).

God has allowed some special observances within our lives, both individually and collectively as a spiritual community. However, when we begin to treat and approach these special moments as a common thing, God removes Himself from the equation because we have desecrated the significance of the special moment by taking that which was once holy and consecrated and turning it into something that is profane and common. These special moments were established to set us apart from the rest of the world and draw us into closer fellowship with one another and into closer relationship with God. At this point in time, we cannot allow the sacred meaning behind commemorating our Lord and Savior’s birth to be reduced to nothing more than another opportunity to be vile and common. We must do our best to uphold the truths that we know to be true and represent our Lord in the best manner possible. All eyes are on us…

We have sat by idly and have allowed it to happen as believers. We have lost the strength of our voice in the world…
