365 Project - Day 314 - "You're Focusing On The Wrong Cup"
November 10, 2015 - "You're Focusing On The Wrong Cup"
If you truly believe in Christ's teachings...
If you truly consider yourself to be a follower of Christ...
If you truly wish to call yourself a Christian...
Make sure that you're living as one.
The Bible does NOT say:
"This I command you. Each year to celebrate my birth you shall taketh all cups and decorate them with snowflakes and garlands and pretty scenes of winter. And you shall condemn those who do not decorate their cups, for their faith in me is not strong. Do this in memory of me."
What the Bible DOES say when it comes to "Jesus" and "Cups" can be found in Matthew's Gospel... Chapter 26... Verses 27-29:
And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."
Graphics on paper cups... Decorations in storefront windows... Saying "Merry Christmas" instead of just "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" is NOT how you celebrate the Lord.
Christmas is NOT being attacked by those who are not Christian. Christmas IS, however, being defaced by supposed followers of Christ who have forgotten what it truly means to be Christian.
(You're focusing on the wrong "Cup".)
STOP trying to put the "Christ" back in "Christmas"...
START living in a way that puts the "Christ" back in "Christian".
