The Fool Says in His Heart there Is No Christmas

 3.12.13

The Simple Man says in his heart,

Peace!

Joy!

Hope!

Believe!

And buys a Tree and
decorates the halls,
and wraps gifts,
and plans a meal.

But his words, 
his coming and going are all empty.
His house shines with a thousand  lights,
but his heart is darkened with a thousand sins.

How can one possible
proclaim Peace and Joy without Christ?
How can you have true Hope,
if you just believe and try by all means to leave God,
the object of our faith, out?

The Fool says in his heart,
"There is no God!"
The fool says in his heart,
"There is no Christmas"
For Christmas without Christ is

Peaceless.

Joyless.

Hopeless.

If your Believe lacks the direct object: God,
then your believe is futile.

The Peace we proclaim this season,
is the Peace that is only found when
Jesus, God Incarnate, comes and
breaks us down and we fall on our knees,
and with a repentant heart we pray,
and He hears us and makes Peace with us.

The Joy we proclaim this season,
is the Joy that never fails because it is grounded
in the God who has come,
and has conquered death
and sin,
and gives Life Everlasting.

The Hope we proclaim this season,
is the Hope that is anchored in God's Word,
and not in empty wishes,
in vain thoughts.
It is a Hope that will never
disappoint us,
but will walk us all the way through valleys and hills.

Believe, yes, but believe in God,
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Believe in Him who became man,
and humbled himself unto death,
and death on the cross.

Believe in Him, who is not longer in a tomb,
but is sited at the right hand of God
making intercession for us. 
Believe in Him who has the power to
give Life,
the One who gives us Living Water,
so that we may never thirst.

Believe in Jesus,
the Prince of Peace,
Our true, unshakable Hope,
The giver of Joy.

Believe in Him,
and then join us this Christmas,
and let us proclaim together,
so that all may hear:

Peace!

Joy!

Hope!

Believe in Christ!

Our Savior has come!

Alleluia!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
