Christmas celebrates the coming of Christ. The invasion of the visible world by the invisible. “We interrupt this broadcast!” For a specific purpose, says the Bible. “I have come that they might have LIFE and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10) Think about it. Apart from this result (people born into supernatural LIFE rather than just natural life, unlimited LIFE rather than life limited by years) the coming of Christ was a colossal failure! The reason for the season is the healing of the human heart and the gift of eternal life!
So. . .on this 11th day of our prayer journey, will you pray for people to be called to Christ?
Will you pray for them to experience an insatiable hunger for eternal answers? For every Christmas carol to wake within them an awareness of their own emptiness, a determination to “follow the star” until it leads to the Savior? Will you pray for the Spirit to use every Christmas concert, every worship service, every testimony? Take time with this assignment. It is reason for the season.
