Blessed Christmas to You

“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”  (Isaiah 66:13)

Subject: Blessed Christmas

Christmas Eve typically marks the last day of the Advent season. Since November, churches and various Christian communities around the world have been helping their congregations to wait, to hope, and to anticipate the birth of Christ more than 2000 years ago.  Following Christmas, traditionally there will be 12 days of feasting, from which the popular song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is based upon. It has been said that the wise men arrived in Bethlehem sometime on January 6th, which marks the end of these 12 days and the start of the next season of the Western Church calendar: Epiphany.

If there is anything more distracting or disruptive, it is the non-stop cry of the materialistic culture to buy, buy, and buy stuff. Buy before Christmas because it is better to give than to receive. Buy at Boxing Day because prices are amazingly low. Buy before the end of the calendar year, as the budgeted amount has not been fully spent. Already, Canadian debt levels are climbing to record highs, with some families spending beyond their means. Just because it is Christmas.

The Christmas Peace

“For the upright will live in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.”  (Proverbs 2:21-22)

Subject: The Christmas Peace

Today, many world leaders are gathered in South Africa to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela, who died last week at the age of 95. Hailed by Obama as “the last great liberator of the 20th Century,” Mandela has been a symbol of peace and a testimony that there are some wars worth fighting for. While it began for Mandela as a fight for liberating the black people in South Africa against apartheid and the evils associated with it, when he became President in 1994, he inherited a nation deeply divided by bitterness and strife. This is visibly seen even in the sport of Rugby. When the national team of South Africa, the Springboks were playing, both the white and black supporters would be there cheering, but for different teams. The whites would show support for the mostly white players in their own team. The blacks would cheer for anybody to beat the Springboks. Apartheid had divided the nation into two. Both camps hated each other so much that they willingly embraced the famous saying: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Such an attitude is not Christlike. It is another way to promote war and violence.

The Christmas Hope

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  (Romans 15:13)


Subject: Hope is that Little Light Flickering in the Dark

In lamenting the state of our times, some people have said that “Ten years ago, we had Steve Jobs, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope. Now we have no jobs, no cash, and no hope.” Sounds depressing indeed.

Tough though it may be, it is still not a disaster to have no jobs. In fact, losing a job is increasingly very common. In Canada, the extremely tight controls over immigration is a clue on how difficult it is for the Canadian government to create jobs for its citizens. It is still not the end of the world if we have no cash. At least in Canada, we have a welfare system and various charities around to assist the homeless and the needy. We are the envy of many other developing countries in the world.  However, when it comes to not having hope, it is a different matter altogether. We need hope more than jobs or cash.
