Why Do We Take Christ out of Christ

Why Do We Take Christ Out Of Christmas?


Christmas is the only holiday we often don’t call by name.

We often forget about the true reason that Christ came.


It’s the only holiday that we often call “a holiday.”

It’s true meaning, is often, taken away!


It’s more than the tree and all of the glittering lights…

It’s time to think about the Bethlehem star so bright!


It’s more than going shopping at the malls…

More than, “Jingle Bells,” or “Deck the Halls!”


It’s more than seeing how many people we can buy for.

Or that clearance sale,

  you’re willing “to die for!”


It’s more than buying the “newest in entertainment.”

Or receiving a gift that may

 “cause an embarrassment.”


Beyond all of the presents and all we truly believe in.

Let’s all come to Christ Jesus and receive him!


Let’s think about his birth, and his

 death on the cross!

Without HIM… The true meaning of Christmas is lost!


He brings the hope, joy and cheer that’s needed!

Won’t you listen to his voice?  That often goes unheeded?


Christ is what’s important!  And shouldn’t be left out!

He’s what matters! And is what

 Christmas is all about!


Let’s be joyful! It was for all of us that he came!

And take this time to bring honor and glory to his name!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
