Christmas Is What You Have In Your Heart – Susy Pujiro
Christmas is the season of giving, the season of Joy, the season of peace on earth as a savior was born. We celebrate the birth of Jesus. In Matthew 2:11, the three wise men came to see Jesus and brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The gifts have some meaning.
Gold represents something precious. Gold can represent people you love. Do you only think of your family members or relatives in Christmas season? Do you only visit them in Christmas season? If people are precious, we should honor and love our family and relatives in every season of our lives.
Frankincense represents praise and perfume. Your praise and worship are like a sweet smell to the Lord. Perfume represents something smells good. So Frankincense represent of how you see people and how people see you too. Do you have good thoughts then it will be like sweet beautiful smell or it will be stinky like a skunk. But whatever you think of a person, then it’s the perfume you projects about the person. The same with other’s view of you. What fragrance do you project…?
Myrrh represents oil or Holy Spirit. It represents your heart if it’s oiled by the Holy Spirit or not. What do you think in your heart? The Bible says in Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good, and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil. For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks”. What is in your heart? Do you think of good things or evil things?
Christmas also means a season of love…. We give because we love or we love so we give. No matter how you want to say it, Love = Give. You cannot give without love. Even when you give with a grouchy heart, you are driven by love. That’s why you give.
I believe Christmas should be every day and every moment. If we say we love Jesus and He dwells in our hearts, then our heart should beat with love. Because the heart has to beat so we can live. Let it be with every heartbeat, there will be a beat of love.
So let love also be our motivation to live our lives that can be an example to the world, not only by words but also by deed.
I wish you “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”
May 2015 be a year of good health, love, peace, joy, happiness, dreams come true and prosperity.
May God’s hands will be upon you all days of your life.
May you count your blessings every day whether it’s small or big.
Because miracle happens every day 🙂
