As kids, Lin and I used to sing Christmas song at church and elsewhere cuz everyone else was doing that. It was kinda the thing to do at this time of year, but not any more - it's more than that now. What magnificent Christmas carols of truth (not all are filled with truth from Scripture, but last night they were). What a magnificent Jesus!
* Green - which represents the Promise of God's saving grace. Think about all the green we see at Christmas... in wreaths, in mistletoe ..as God and us too..hope for a kiss from loved ones, in the ever-green trees, in Christmas cookies, in wrapped up presents. You know how during wintertime when all seems to look so dead and dormant outside, well the color of green is the color that people way back in the day would put up to decorate with... because it represents new life, budding growth, eternal life, and a living hope. I love the color green!
* Red - which represents the Price of saving grace.
* White - which represents the Product of saving grace. I love to get the clean linens out of the dryer after they have been washed clean - so warm! I was not so clean inside for 17 years, not at all. But because of the Cross, Christ washed me. Just had to turn and ask Him to. White is such a great color.
* Gold - which represents the regal Purpose of saving grace. You know that there is a Kingdom and a King coming again. No more selfish presidents or other kinds of leaders leading us astray. How great will that be! We believers will be raptured to be with them and then He will return to this earth with us to rule and reign on earth for a thousand years. Yes, the color gold is kind of a precursor of Christ's coming Kingdom which you can be a part of. Today is a great day to make this the best Christmas you have ever experienced. Turn and trust the Jesus of Christmas right now! Remember the gifts that were brought to baby Jesus? Why gold, frankincense, and myrrh?
