Personalities and Faith

Christmas trees are works of art. Trimmed trees reveal much about the personality of those who decorated their sagging branches. Traditional and conservative types work to recreate real trees of their pasts with red and green lights, equal numbers of colored ornaments, carefully hung silver ice cycles and top it off with an angel or a star. Why change what brings back such happy memories?

A new generation feels the freedom to change from conformity to nonconformity; they express their personalities through white, silver or maybe even pink or purple artificial Christmas trees. Lights can all be solid white, red, or blue…They can decorate the entire tree in John Deere ornaments, Elvis collectibles or flamboyantly promote their favorite sports team with tree decorations. We reveal much about ourselves through trimming our Christmas trees.

How much do we reveal about our faith through clinging to the cross? “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18 NIV).” The Apostle Paul never flinched; he preached the cross and Christ crucified. “but we preach Christ crucified (1 Corinthians 1:23a NIV).” I may describe Christmas trees as works of art; Christ’s cross was a work of sacrifice and love.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
