Talking about Jesus at Christmas

December 20, 2013 | Published in Uncategorized

“If your kids are more excited about Santa than Jesus, don’t blame anyone but yourself.” – Burk Parsons

Very well said! What incredible irony it is that the incarnation of Jesus has been overshadowed by so many other things this season. Parents make sure you use this Christmas season to really celebrate and explore the wonder of Jesus coming to earth for us. Some parents follow an advent calendar, or read from an advent devotional, others read the Christmas story on Christmas day, still others participate in a spirit of generosity since Christ gave so much to us. Whatever you do, don’t waste this season on mere sentimentality or materialistic consumerism that marks so much of what Christmas has come to be about. John Piper put it this way,

 

So my counsel is to give all your efforts to making your children as happy as they can possibly be with every kind of surprise that is rooted in the true meaning of Christmas. Let your decorations point to Jesus. Let your food point to Jesus. Let your games point to Jesus. Let your singing point to Jesus. Out-rejoice the world, out-give the world, out-decorate the world, and let it all point to Jesus.

 

 
If being Jesus-focused is a killjoy for your Christmas, you don’t know him well.

 

If you haven’t regularly become accustom to talking about Jesus together as a family, Christmas would be a great time to start. How have you found effective ways to bring Jesus into your conversations and in your celebration of His birth?
