Get a “double dose” of Christmas!

JesusInOurHeartI am not taking about decorating two Christmas trees, buying twice as many gifts or setting up two large dinners this holiday season.

I am talking about celebrating the Lord Jesus’ birth in two very distinct ways.

The first way is what all Christians do this time of year—celebrate the Lord’s physical birth in a humble manger. But the second, and most important way is to celebrate the Lord’s spiritual birth in your heart—a humble heart.

In that way Jesus’ teaching will grow and mature in your feelings, thoughts and actions. This is the real miracle of the Lord’s Advent—to transform humanity.

In fact, this second birth of Jesus is the secret behind the meaning of the Lord’s Second Coming!

Merry Christmas times two to you and yours!
