All I want for Christmas…

Christmas cannot be all that we want it to be. It’s only a holiday.

Christmas cannot bring harmony to your home.

Christmas cannot bring peace on earth.

Christmas cannot bring happiness.

But Christ Himself can do all of this and more.

That is really what we are longing for deep… inside.

 • Not Christmas, but Christ.

• Not merriment, but the Messiah.

• Not goodwill, but God.

• Not presents, but His presence.

Anything or anyone short of this will disappoint.

 But God never will.

That’s what I want for Christmas–Jesus Christ.
