It’s that time of year again. Besides turkey, we have Black Friday sales and pre Black Friday sales, all in preparation for the big day… Christmas! But what has all this to do with Jesus our Savior? Can you picture the apostle Paul Christmas shopping, or going around wishing everyone a Merry Christmas? Can you picture Peter doing that? How about Jesus? This is crazy what we as born again Christians are doing! (I don’t do it anymore.) And it is without a doubt unbiblical to celebrate a Roman Catholic day that is pagan at its roots! Some food for thought as we enjoy our Thanksgiving dinners.
John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1 Corinthians 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
1 Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
