Christmas is Approaching

With Christmas just around the corner, the festive season is well under way and the shopping centre’s are buzzing with activity. At this time of year many spend a little too much on things that they hope will make someone else happy. Many people celebrate December 25 with their families by thanking Santa Claus for the joy and peace that has descended on their home for a short while. And only a relatively small number of people will remember and ponder upon the real reason behind Christmas.

Over 2010 years ago Christ was born in Bethlehem as a Saviour to the world. As this busy time of year passes us by, let us not forget that He came on a mission. He set us an example and has a personal mission for each one of us. Reflect on the passage from Isaiah below and take note of the names ‘He will be called’.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. — Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)

Merry Christmas

This is the first post for my new WordPress blog. It half replaces my Love Missions website which expires in the next couple of days. I will be posting general thoughts as well as some of my photography here. My many travels will also get documented here where an internet connection is available.

Well it is the 25th of December. Many thoughts come attached to this date. Some think about what is in between the covers of the Bible and of what the birth of Christ brought to this world, while many others think about what is beneath the tree covered in colourful wrapping paper. Then there are the many intangible ideas as well, such as the chaos of christmas shopping or the joy of seeing family members again.

However you see it, I hope your day was full of fun and special memories were made.

Merry Christmas
