Remember that time you went to your friend’s birthday party and opened all of his presents? When was that? Last year Christmas? When you frame it like that, it does seem a little strange how we choose to celebrate Christmas. ‘Hey Jesus, Happy Birthday, look what I got me!’ Right? Now we know that December 25th is very likely not the actual day Jesus was born, but it should cause us to pause for a few minutes and remember what, or Who, this time is meant to be about. In Luke 9v23 Jesus says if you want to follow Me you must, ‘Deny yourself, take up your cross daily and follow Me.’ Come up with one practical way to do that this Christmas time. #christmaschallenge
