The Spirit of Christmas...

(Monday, December 24, 2007 - I've been pressed for time, so here's an adaptation from another project... I didn't want to miss the opportunity to bare witness, here, within this season.)

The Spirit of Christmas -- is Pure Love.

The pure love of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

One of my favorite scriptures is this:

1 Corinthians 12:31 -

... covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

Then come the great words of Paul extolling the high status of charity in Chapter 13... these verses are oft repeated by lovers, one to another, for Charity -- a pure love, excels and exceeds almost all else...

Sure!

This is easy stuff for those among us that are easy to love and adore... (you, for example.)

In Matthew Chapter 5

Christ taught:

... I say unto you, Love ..., bless ..., do good to them ..., and pray for them which despitefully use ..., and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: ...

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Here's to perfect Love!

(which is willing to forgive a misstep, or two... or more - on the learning curve of life!)

Here's to an evermore Joyful Christmas -may we lengthen our strides, and renew our faith in, and upon, His most excellent word!

Wonderful!

Counselor!

Let earth receive her King of Kings...

Merry Christmas - to all!
