The Christ of Christmas

By Andrea Merrell

And I pray that Christ will make his home 
in your hearts through faith. I pray that you may have 
your roots and foundation in love.
Ephesians 3:17 TEV

The birth of Jesus, the true reason for the season, was a beautiful, wonderful, magical time. An angel appeared to lowly shepherds, and a brilliant star led a trio of wise men to a stable where the savior of the world awaited them. But I wonder what happened after that holy night. Did the shepherds and wise men go back to business as usual with fond memories of the awe they experienced, or did the events change their hearts and lives forever?

This year, prepare a special place in your heart for the Christ of Christmas. He is no longer the babe in a manger. He is our risen savior—King of kings and Lord of lords. Celebrate Him, not only this Christmas, but every single day throughout the year.

May He truly make his home in your hearts through faith.
