Christ Centered Christmas - Fellowship Fridays


'Tis the Season!  It's Christmas, the Most Wonderful time of the Year!  How do YOU celebrate Christmas?  "...and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (Matthew 1:23)

I love this time of year.  I love seeing the joy on everyone's face, I love the excitement in the children's eyes... I love singing the Christmas songs, hearing the Christmas music throughout the house...  I love just about everything about Christmas!  "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." Luke 2:14)

I believe it's important to keep our thoughts centered on Christ at Christmas, it's so easy to get caught up in the flurry of shopping, the hustle and bustle that surrounds this day, but we need to stay focused on the CHRIST in Christmas!  What are some ways that you keep Christ the center of your Christmas?  "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2:11)

I've listed a few ways to share the JOY of Christmas with those around us.  Please feel free to add to this list.  Also, please add ways that you share Christ during Christmas in your country! 

Find a family in need, take gifts of food, clothing or other needed items.  
Visit your neighbors, share Christmas goodies, etc... with them. 
Visit a Hospital to spread some Christmas Cheer!
Invite people over, many are alone and missing family this time of year. 
GIVE!  Do what you can to help those in need. 

"Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord the God which he hath given thee." (Deuteronomy 17:5) 

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)
