Christmas Presents Us With A Question: Do You Welcome Him Or Reject Him?

Advent is coming to a close and Christmas is almost here. With the coming of Christ in the Incarnation, the world has been changed. No other person in the history of the world has had as much impact on the world as Jesus Christ. There is of course a reason for this, He is the creator of it! With the coming of Christ comes also a responsibility for each and every person. Will the love of Christ be the focus of one's life or will the world be the focus of one's life? As we know wherever the love of man is directed, there his time and his heart will also be found. Does our relationship with Christ come first in our lives or does something else preoccupy us? The Incarnation of Jesus Christ brings mercy to the world, yes, it's the good news! But it also brings forth a mandatory response from each person to accept or reject His mercy. The choice is ours. Which side are you on? This question beckons us this Christmas season. As the world falls deeper and deeper into an anti-Christian abyss, will we ourselves fall into it? Or will we look instead into the abyss of mercy and love of Jesus Christ? As we see the merciful infant Jesus bring forth love and grace to all mankind, are we prepared to welcome Him or reject Him? Is our lamp lit and burning or is it found to be without flame? This is the message we need to share with our friends and loved ones this Christmas season.
