Letter from Jesus about Christmas

jesus

It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking my name out of the season.

How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don’t care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate my birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

Now, having said that let me go on.

If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn’t allow a scene depicting my birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If all my followers did that there wouldn’t be any need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around town.

Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree. It was I who made all trees. You can remember me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching, explaining who I am in relation to you and what each of our tasks were. If you have forgotten that one, look up John 15:1-8.

If you want to give me a present in remembrance of my birth here is my wish list. Choose something from it:

1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way my birthday is being celebrated, write letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home. They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of year. I know, they tell me all the time.

2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don’t have to know them personally. They just need to know that someone cares about them.

3. Instead of writing the president complaining about the wording on the cards his staff sent out this year, why don’t you write and tell him that you’ll be praying for him and his family this year. Then follow up with your prayer. 

4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can’t afford and they don’t need, spend time with them. Tell them the story of my birth, and why I came to live with you down here. Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.

5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or her.

6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take their own life this season because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don’t know who that person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm smile. It could make the difference between life or death.

7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town calls the holiday, be patient with the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind word. Even if they aren’t allowed to wish you a “Merry Christmas,” that doesn’t keep you from wishing them one. 

8. If you really want to make a difference, support a missionary — especially one who takes my love and Good News to those who have never heard my name.

9. Here’s a good one. There are individuals and whole families in your town who not only will have no Christmas tree, but neither will they have any presents to give or receive. If you don’t know them, buy some food and a few gifts and give them to the Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, or some other charity that believes in me and they will make the delivery for you.

10. Finally, if you want to make a statement about your belief in and loyalty to me, then behave like a Christian. Don’t do things in secret that you wouldn’t do in my presence. Let people know by your actions that you are one of mine.

Don’t forget: I am God and can take care of myself. Just love me and do what I have told you to do. I’ll take care of all the rest. Check out the list above and get to work; time is short. I’ll help you, but the ball is now in your court.

And do have a most blessed Christmas with all those whom you love.

I love you,

Jesus

  1. This is beautifully written and 100% true. As Christians we need to show our love of Jesus and his birthday in our own homes and yards first and foremost. Unfortunately the evil element of humanity is trying to take these things away in public places but like the story above has said, better a manger scene in every yard than one in public. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!⭐️

  3. That was a wonderful reminder! If we don’t dwell on the negative, it is easier to retail that feeling of love for others. Merry Christmas to all.

  6. If all of us would just follow Jesus’ directions there would be no wars, the poor, and everybody would smile, especially at starangers.

  7. I love this and have been guilty of wasted energy on those who want to take Christ out of Christmas. I just saw this today (Dec 29th) but love it and will reblog it next Christmas (with attribution of course).

    Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year

  8. “Behold I came not to end your lives, but that you may have life, and have it to the full.” We are about to enter those Terrible Times Revelation says must happen. Let us keep History in mind and never forget that the more Christianity is prosecuted, the more it flourishes in the end. Jesus Has Overcome the World: “Christ Has Died. Christ Has Risen. Christ Will Come Again.” THESE are the THREE MOST IMPORTANT FACTS in all of History.
