Linus is a shining example of how the faith of one person can help other people rediscover true Christmas spirit. His passion about Christmas, made other people feel passionate about Christmas too.
In today’s society, Christmas is under attack from every angle. We are universally discouraged from keeping Christ in Christmas. That is why we are told in 1 Corinthians 16:13, Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. (NIV)
As long as we carry the real reason for the season in our hearts and minds, nobody can ever take it away. Growing up, changing families, problems of life and the influences of a fallen world will always be a reality – but Jesus Was, and Is, and Always Will Be – and He is the reason we celebrate.
Through standing up for our faith, and sharing the reason we celebrate, we can give the gift of Christmas spirit to someone who knows that something is missing, but just needs someone to help them find it.
