The Spirit Of Christmas
February 1, 2012

The acts of generosity and good will that flourish in December often fade quickly, causing many to say, “I wish we could keep the Christmas spirit all year long.” Why does it seem that kindness and compassion are chained to the calendar? Is there an ever-flowing fountain of compassion deeper than warm holiday feelings that pass with the season?

In the first two chapters of Luke, it is striking that the Holy Spirit is mentioned seven times. His work is cited in the lives of the unborn John the Baptist (1:15), Mary (1:35), Elizabeth (1:41), Zacharias (1:67), and Simeon (2:25-27). Here, in what we often call “the Christmas story,” there is no mention of people having something just come to mind or of feeling strangely moved. Instead, the Holy Spirit is identified as the One who guided Simeon, filled Zacharias and Elizabeth, and created the baby in Mary’s womb.

Do we, like them, recognize the Spirit’s voice in the midst of all others? Are we alert to His promptings and eager to obey? Will we allow His warmth and love to fill our hearts and flow through our hands?

Today, the presence and power of Christ remain with us through the Holy Spirit, who is the true, eternal Spirit of Christmas—all year long.

Let the fullness of Thy Spirit
Fall upon us here this hour.
How we need a new anointing
Of the Holy Ghost and power. —Jarvis

Jesus went away so the Spirit could come to stay.

Read: Luke 1:31-41

The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you. —Luke 1:35
Bible in a year:
Leviticus 14-16

To: The Mayor

the spirit of Christmas is as important in the receivers as it is in the givers.


Yet the receivers attitude and manner is important. Today many are willing to push and shove and in fact run over others to be first to get a wanted item. Greedy.

This is not love or gratitude, or kindness, much less an out pouring of appreciation and love. Father let thy spirit fill the hearts of those seeking thee and wanting to please thee. Showing love, praise and respect, honor and rejoicing in thy love. Help us LORD! We know not what we do.
