…….on Sunday. Yes I know it is Christmas Day, but it is still the first day of the week. And so that is what makes it a particularly special time for Christians. Once a week God has given us our resurrection day to set aside ourselves to devote to Him.
Of course we can happily engage with the great truths of the Lord’s incarnation and make much of those matters. However, we must not forget that we have biblical guidance towards celebrating the Lord’s Day. whilst we have none for celebrating Christmas Day.
We are glad to engage with the truths of incarnation given the way that the ecclesiastical calendar is formed in our culture, but we must never forget that the arrangement is man-made even if the truths celebrated are most definitely God-made.
