Christmas is nearly here again and another year is almost over.
Recently I've seen a lot of anti-Christmas articles written by Christians. I'm not sure whether that's because general Christian attitudes are changing or maybe it's just the kind of Christian company I keep.

Here is a link to an article I posted 5 years ago.

It's the only time of the year when secular radio stations play songs praising the Messiah and Christian stations play songs not about the Messiah in the least bit. I think that is funny myself.

I am neither for Christmas nor against it. I see the good and the bad in it. I do praise God for sending His Son and yet I find not one hint in the New Testament that they celebrated Jesus' birth as much as they certainly did celebrate His death and resurrection (Romans 4:24-25; 10:9-10; 1 Cor. 15:1-3).

Yes there is a lot of irony in Christmas. But whatever our viewpoint we need to be aware of our focus and whether that focus points to Jesus or away from Him.

Are our celebrations of Christmas or our objections to Christmas putting Jesus first?
