Christmas comes – Christmas goes, but there are always SO many who miss out on the real meaning of Christmas. It’s always been that way, and the first Christmas reminds us of those who missed Christmas.
- The Innkeeper – He was so busy – a full hotel – so many customer needs. No time or place in his inn for Jesus at Christmas.
- Religious leaders around King Herod – When the wise men came inquiring about the birth of a kingly Messiah, the religious leaders told Herod that God’s Word said Bethlehem. Yet, they were so focused on staying close to worldly power that they didn’t take God’s Word seriously, and they missed Jesus at Christmas.
- Herod – He tried to eliminate Christmas before it got off the ground – to eradicate Jesus from Christmas – and people are still seeking to use political power to do that today.
Will you miss Christmas, as well? If you find Jesus in all the commotion, you will not ever miss Christmas again.
