Christmas is another opportunity to Behold His Glory – the glory of God, the glory of Jesus. But the opposition is intense. Evil forces want to deface Christmas, to emaciate it; because Christmas is about Christ, the attempt is really aimed at destroying Christ. Let’s just have a holiday with no manger, no carols, no angels, no wise men, no shepherds, no Christmas tree, no Christ. Three states have lawsuits to eliminate poinsettias (only the red ones). Can you imagine?
But for you, Beloved, Christmas is another opportunity to enjoy the symbols and to look past the symbols to Behold His Glory.
There are nine ways you can behold, that is, intensely observe His Glory. There are three specific benefits for you if you do so. In addition, you will learn the Scriptures from which sprang the idea of using a pine tree as part of our celebration of the Light of The World.
This Christmas will be your best if you take the time to Behold His Glory.
