“JESUS said…pray…your Kingdom come…” [Matthew 6:10a]
How does the Kingdom display itself? At Christmas time it is sometimes quietly.
Here in the United States of America the persecution of Christianity is gaining speed as many of those walking in darkness mock even the term Merry Christmas! It’s not Christmas they hate its Christ! The enemies of Christ hate such global focus on the simple, ordinary and quiet entrance of the King of Kings. Sovereignty needs no fanfare to prove its power!
People have been threatened by the loss of their jobs if they say Merry Christmas to customers. Those that bow to the God of mammon do so with open hostility to Christ. This need not stop the customers proclaiming it loudly but when wisdom requires quietness of you as an employee remember, “To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person…” [Luke 6:27-36 TM]
There is a power flowing through the saints of God, more powerful even than words—the resurrected Christ flows through the countenance of those that love Him. A smile, a nod, a kind word…these are the testimonies of Merry Christmas! It is not so much the announcement as the attitude that will flow with power and shine a light into the darkness of so many lonely hearts.
The first and great announcement is still ringing around the universe—nothing can stop the sound of the angelic hosts and their song still sings, sounds and shines from the hearts and faces upon whom His favor rests.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests”
