FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS

Let me start off by saying “Merry Christmas” to you all. It’s been a great pleasure to be your Director of Missions these last 7 years. As we celebrate the birth of our Savior this month my prayer for you is that you would enjoy your family during the holiday time and that you would be a leader in emphasizing the true meaning of Christmas to your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Everything has become so commercialized that much of the time that the Christ of Christmas is left out of the holiday of Christmas. It should truly be a HOLY DAY and not a holiday.

I would encourage you to be an intentional Christian about this special time of year. Be intent on sharing the meaning of season with your family. It would be great to lead off Christmas morning by reading Luke chapter 2 verses 1 through 20 in a family setting. Have the children and the rest of the family gather around and listen to the apostle’s description of this wonderful event. Add in a Christmas song or two for good measure and slow your life down and enjoy the love of God and the love of family.

How pleasing do you think it would be to God if His people, who are called by His name, would spend time on Christmas morning teaching their children what Christmas really means? How pleasing do you think it would be to God for all of us to worship Him together on the same morning? Very pleasing I believe.

Let’s make a plan together. Here is what we can do. I will get my Bible and you get yours. Some time on Christmas morning, sit down and read the Christmas story with me. If you are with family, have them gather around and listen. If you're alone or it’s just you and your spouse, do it anyway. I know I will find comfort in knowing that my friends and the members of our churches are spending time sharing the true meaning of Christmas.

And if you are on Facebook, go to the Le Flore Baptist Association Facebook page and post that you participated in reading the Christmas story on Christmas morning. Share the idea with your friends and let’s give God the glory for giving us His Son. Praise Him from Whom all blessings flow.
