The Ten Commandments Of Christmas

16 Dec

251019_10151123151161107_220605534_nConsider these  “10 Commandments” so that our words,actions,commitments and  priorities will intentionally reflect a “Christ Centered-Gospel Oriented” Advent Season.

rgh

I. Thou shalt not leave “Christ” out of “Christmas” nor refuse to use the word Christmas during this season.

II. Thou shalt demonstrate joy to the world, for the Lord is come.

III. Thou shalt not let Santa Claus take the place of the reality of the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.

IV. Thou shalt remember that the value of gifts we give and receive is the love that’s behind them.

V. Thou shalt consider the words of Jesus,”It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

VI. Thou shalt not neglect Christ and His church during the Christmas Season.

VII. Thy Christmas Cards shall bear the good news of the coming of Christ and His salvation.

VIII. Thou shalt be kind to those who serve; the cashier, the merchant, and the mail carrier.

IX. Thou shalt remember the greatest gift of all, when God gave His only begotten Son.

X. In all thy giving, thou shalt give a gift to the One whose birthday we celebrate. Appropriate recipients shall
be missions, thy church, and those in need.

    I thought number 10/X should of included, thou shalt give the one who sent you this a gift, without expecting in return, but since you didn’t add that, I thought I would, hahaha. MERRY CHRISTMAS. I HAVE ENJOYED YOUR POSTS AND E-MAILS THIS YEAR. GETTING MY STRENGTH AND HEALTH BACK FROM MY 3RD BOUT WITH CANCER, I CAN STILL TESTIFY, HE IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE. GOD IS SO GOOD.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND TO ALL THOSE IN YOUR CHURCH. LOVE-IN-CHRIST, Teressia
