You’ve gotten started on getting ready. The tree is up, the lights brightly illuminate the front of the house and those cherished Christmas decorations you put up year after year are in place. And you have a lot more to do. Including getting ready spiritually. Get ready spiritually so you don’t just commemorate a birth long ago, but celebrate the birth of the One who was/is/forever will be God. Get ready spiritually so you don’t just see Christmas as a holiday that gets packed up until next year, but a time of once again welcoming Jesus as your Savior all year long. Get ready spiritually so you don’t just focus on Jesus’ birth, but on what he promises to do as Lord of your life. Yes, you do have a lot of spiritual getting ready to do. But there’s still time. And it matters. Because Christmas without Christ isn’t much of a Christmas at all.
