The Holiday Spirit

The Holiday Spirit by Keith Cook

"When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy." Matthew 2:9,10

Do you have the holiday spirit? I do! I am ready for the spirit of the season to settle down on me. What is the holiday spirit?

The holiday spirit is as follows:

1. The ability to smile more than normal.

2. The desire to say hello to most everyone you meet.

3. The uncanny feeling that comes over you when you think about getting someone else something special for the holidays.

4. The stamina that comes to give you super-human strength to do more and get more accomplished than is normally possible.

5. The peaceful contentment that you have concerning your life, future, and opportunities.

6. The desire to see old friends and family.

7. The realization that Jesus really loved you so much that He would trade Heaven for Earth, privilege for pain, and offer you mercy instead or misery.

I hope you now have the holiday spirit. Your holiday spirit is directly related to how well you have experienced His Spirit!

Special note: Rest, relax, have fun, enjoy your time off with friends and family!

Daily Prayer Focus: Praise God for this special time of year where we can celebrate His Love demonstrated by the greatest gift ever received, Jesus Christ!
