Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas
 
The world has adapted the phrase " Happy Holidays". Everywhere you go you hear "Happy Holidays"  Listen the next time you turn on the Television, pay attention to the headlines and billboards, listen the next time you are in the store and the clerk hands you your bag and says "Happy Holidays" and  without thinking  you smile and say "thank you, Happy Holidays to you too".  I have responded in the same way, until I realized that I was conforming to the world. You may say " Antoinette you have gone too far..."  but the Word of God tells us in Romans 12:2 " Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world..."
The world has set a pattern for us to follow, it is designed not to offend other traditions, those who don't believe and for us to deny what we believe as Christians.   This Holiday has a name and a meaning, and without its original purpose it has no real meaning.
 
"Christmas"  represents the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,  the one who redeemed us from eternal spiritual death and gave us access to eternal life through Jesus Christ.  As Christians, we must remember  to keep  Christ in Christmas even to the smallest detail. The next time you hear  "Happy Holidays" remember to respond in a way that will give God glory, and keep the real meaning of Christmas Alive !
 
"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you: he is "Christ" the Lord"  Luke 2:11
 
Merry Christmas
