How can a Christian find peace in celebrating the birthday of Jesus? The day has been obscured by Boxing and New Years’ Day; some even celebrates Christmas Eve. Becky Kelly has sung a brilliant song, in fact, “Where is the Line to See Jesus” navigate us to the gift we should be presenting on the day Jesus was born. She uses a child in her Video to express her emotion of sadness for the way Jesus’s birthday is celebrated, though she is guilty of the same act. There is only one day for Jesus’s birth and that I believe should be the only day for a holiday in that month. That may be the help we all need to focus on the reason some Christians celebrate such a day.
It is not Santa’s birthday and the kid realized it; what is our excuse for not raising such awareness to our kids? Becky, becomingly frustrated thought of the kid as an angel. If as adults we believe in Santa then we may as well go wait in the mall for him as does our kids. Realize that only those who can afford it wait on Santa but the gift of God we can all afford. I pray for all that you do not seek the kid to thank him; instead thank him who sends the kid. God accepts the glory for the birth of his Son.
Searching for God is continuous; we seek him to know his will, “Where is the Line to see Jesus?” The search is to find the line but first present your holy body because that is the living sacrifice for glorifying God. Remember that God gave us his Son for a reason; it is to celebrate life and that which is to come as a result of the life he asked that we should live. Living by Gods’ will is that which is done to become a brother of Jesus. Jesus is the first born of the family; the twelve that he appointed are second to his throne; those that live by the will of God have joined his family of disciples.
As the beautiful voice of Becky continued, she cued us to that which we will all confess, which says, ‘Jesus is Lord.’ His life span on this earth ended over a period of three days, yet we celebrate only the day he died. Jesus’s birth, death and resurrection are Sabbaths for the New Testament. Those are the three days that bring us closer to The Heavenly Father where life is celebrated. Jesus said, “I came that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” He gave us salvation; today, we are in line to have it eternally. Jesus’s birth made it all possible and Becky has reminded us of it; it is therefore, my pleasure to rate her song five stars.
