Years ago I discovered that someone in my church was going to be alone for Christmas. Now if that’s your choice, I’m ok with that. But I don’t think that anybody should be alone on Christmas Day. If you don’t have any relatives to celebrate it with, you should have a church family that will fill in the the gap.
But I was thinking, what would Christmas be like alone.
You bought yourself presents, that you wrapped and put under the tree for you to open on Christmas day.
You decorated a tree that only you will see, then put it away. (Probably 5 minutes after opening gifts)
You work in the kitchen for hours to prepare a meal that you eat in minutes - alone.
You sing Christmas songs, to yourself.
Depressing isn’t it?
That’s the difference between being a Lone Ranger Christian and being part of the Body of Christ. You can celebrate Christmas alone, but it’s a whole lot better with family and friends. You can be a Christian by yourself (I have no idea how.) but it is a whole lot better when you celebrate Jesus with others.
That’s one of the reasons why God wants us to come together and worship Him. So Christianity isn’t like Christmas - alone.
