10 Commandments of Christmas

“A voice cries out: ‘In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.’” (Isaiah 40:3)

1. You shall not let the secular replace the sacredness of Christmas.

2. You shall remember that Mary’s baby is God’s son, our Savior.

3. You shall make room in your heart for Christ and in your busy schedule for worship, prayer and service in His name.

4. You shall not forget the sacrifice Christ made on your behalf when he left the Kingdom of God to come to the Kingdom of earth.

5. You shall support the poor, the needy, the sick, the downtrodden, for in as much as you do it to the least of these, you do it to Christ.

6. You shall loosen the swaddling clothes from Christ and let him have freedom to work and rule in all areas of your life.

7. You shall not forget the name of the Christ-child, Jesus, for there is no other name under heaven or on earth whereby we can be saved.

8. You shall believe in the Christ of Christmas with all your heart, and reap the benefit from believing.

9. You shall do more than just celebrate Christmas; you shall do the work of Christmas.

10. You shall keep the spirit of Christmas all year long.

I invite you to let these wise words become a reality in your life this Advent season as we prepare for Christmas. Remember, God loves you and I do, too!
