Christmas Is Never Over

It’s truly amazing. Blink your eyes and suddenly ‘the most wonderful time of the year’ has disappeared right before your eyes. Christmas is over and has been replaced by Valentine’s Day, Christmas music is gone until next year and, if the truth be known, you’re probably ready for life to get back to normal. Before you know it, Christmas will probably be only a memory – except for the bills, extra pounds you’ve acquired and pesky needles that will appear in the oddest places for the next six months. But the Good News of a Great Joy is that Christmas is never over – it’s really just beginning! And the reason is so very basic. Christ has come to us as one of us to give us the gift of God’s unconditional, transformational and invitational love. And that’s something that can never be limited to a single day, 12 days or even a season.
