At midnight last night, my daughter sticks her head out of the room she was in and shouts!  "Merry Christmas!"  We've had this conversation as to when it was appropriate to put up your tree, play Christmas songs or say "Merry Christmas!"

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

The term "Merry Christmas" dates all the way back to 1699.  While it was more about cheer and probably a little too much ale, people still say it today.  

How will you worship, praise and give thanks this holiday season? 
How will you honor Jesus in your heart and with your life? 

Here are a few suggestions.  

It's ok to say Merry Christmas.  Surveys tell us that most people just don't care.  They are ok with Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah and other religious statements. 

Give, expecting nothing in return.  I know that some people feel obligated to return the favor.  But don't expect anything.  Allow your giving to be an expression of your love.  

Go to church.  If you don't already have a church home and you are in the area.  Come by Faith Family Worship Center.  If you are nowhere near us, then ask around.  It won't take long for someone to invite you. 

Quite your soul and talk to Jesus.  Thank Him for coming to earth as a child and growing up to be a man.  Thank Him for presenting life in a way that you can understand it.  Then thank Him for giving His life so you could have eternal life. 

Got some other ideas?  Let me know what you are going to be doing below. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, thank You for what You have done so I can say, Merry Christmas.  AMEN
