A Christmas Mandate

December 16, 2009

Happy Holidays! I love this time of year because there is something “supernatural” that exchanges between Heaven and Earth in this season. Consciously for some and sub-consciously for others we are forced to reflect on the goodness of God. The world may not know they are accessing God’s nature when they give a gift to a friend, express an extra-kindness, or simply say something cheery for the Holidays with a smile; but citizens of the Kingdom recognize the supernatural ways of royalty. We are called royalty with a mandate to rule on Earth and when Christians express extreme love it helps a needy world bring Heaven into greater focus. What’s exciting about this time of year is that our culture, unbeknownst to them; with the caroling, gift-exchanging, and the thanksgiving that goes on creates for themselves an ideal atmosphere for Heaven to invade. Merry Christmas and may the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ be more than a memory…let it be a mandate!
