The story is told of a young boy who asked his parents, as they stored away the Christmas decorations for another year, “Do we store away Jesus, too?” An innocent, but great question.
We celebrate the birth of Jesus, but will we allow our lives to be joined to His life throughout the New Year?
It’s easy to think of Jesus as just rescuing us from hell or helping us be a better version of our not-too-bad selves. But Jesus didn’t come to fill a missing gap in our lives or add some goodness when we fall a bit short, but to become our life. As Paul told the Galatians, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”
So, put away the decorations for the sake of your neighbors, but let Jesus live on in you.
