This is Part 2 in our Advent Conspiracy series. You can read Part 2 here.
Today we’ll wrap up our Advent Conspiracy series by reviewing our four focuses for this month. Let’s conspire together to reclaim the true meaning and experience of Christmas as God intended!
Let’s conspire to WORSHIP EXCLUSIVELY the Christ of Christmas. The angels proclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest”. Let’s make Jesus our attention and priority over everything else that filled the season. Take every opportunity to worship Christ exclusively.
Let’s conspire to SPEND LESS money on stuff and give relationally. After all, God gave us Himself, not “stuff”. “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” —which means, “God with us.” Spend time with someone.
Let’s conspire to GIVE MORE! Hey, remember the few bucks you saved by spending less on stuff? Let’s follow Christ’s example and redistribute our wealth to “the least of these”, those who really need it. There are opportunities near and far to bless people in need.
Let’s conspire to RECEIVE FULLY. Let’s open our hearts wide to receive the hope, joy, peace, and love that is Jesus Christ. Let’s not let what Christmas has become exhaust us, but rather receive Christ fully and be ”filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Eph. 3:19
