Christmas Bling
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Christmas Bling

Jingle bells, blinking lights,
mistletoe, silent night,
away in a manger, Santa Claus,
heralding angels, crowded stores,
candy canes, and caroling,
it's the annual Christmas bling!

We've all witnessed year after year
the name of Jesus disappear,
but should we really be surprised
that the name of Jesus is despised?
The Lord sees the outward traditions
signs, symbols and depictions...

He knows about the lack of respect
and how His authority men reject.
Christmas is not a religious event,
celebrating won't make men repent.
Isn't this why Christ came to earth
to redeem and grant lost men new birth?

If there is no change in the heart's intent
it matters not how Christmas is spent.
Symbols and signs can be replaced
but Christ the Lord can't be erased!
REJOICE all ye who bear His name,
and in every season His truth proclaim!
With or without the Christmas bling
they can't stop us from serving our King!

I don't think I've ever seen as much "Christmas Bling" as this year. It started before Halloween! The stores began to raise their prices lately and fire some because the store wasn't making as much profit as they wanted. I've noticed so many other things where Christ is pushed out of sight. They don't seem to even know why there is a Christmas Day.
