It's All About Jesus - Nothing More, Nothing Less

By: Shari A. Miller

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." ~ Isaiah 7:14

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is to celebrate advent together as a family. This past Sunday my husband talked about what he wanted Christmas to mean for our family. The main thing he pointed out, was that he wanted "The Miller Family Christmas" to be all about Jesus, nothing more, nothing less. He wants others to see Jesus in our lives, in everything that we do. He wants His light to shine so brightly within us that it'll will make others stop and take notice and wonder, what's different. Can you imagine if all Christians did this? 

What a Christmas that would be! A Christmas that's all about Jesus!

The Lord has been speaking to me lately. He's been telling me something that I already knew, but for some reason, I at times forget. Everything in our lives needs to be all about Him. Nothing else matters but Him. It doesn't matter what new car your family member drives, or what new outfit your friend got at the mall. It doesn't even matter if you're right or wrong in the argument that you and your husband had last night. There is only one thing that matters....

Putting Jesus first and foremost in your life and submitting to Him in everything that you say and do.

"in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." ~ Proverbs 3:6

Let's make this Christmas a Christmas to remember.

Let's start afresh and get back to the basics. Let's recommit our lives back to Him. Let's change our purpose for living to be about Jesus instead of self. Let's give others something to talk about. Let us pray that they come to us and ask us, "There is something different about you, but I can't quite put my finger on it. What is it?" 

When this happens we can give others the best gift of all. We can tell them about our Father who has given us eternal life through His Son. We can point them back to Jesus. Because after all, Jesus it the main reason we have Christmas at all.

"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son." ~ 1 John 5:11
