What of the Christmas Tree?


Do you


u know what Evergreen means? Everlasting life and that brings up the contrast between that definition and the one given in Jeremiah 10. Jeremiah is speaking of an idol that is strikingly close to that of a Christmas tree. But it is not a Christmas tree but that of an idol. In Isaiah 44 a man cuts a tree and with half of it he uses to cook his meal and warm himself. Once done he uses the other half to make an idol of which he then Falls behind it to worship it. That was his intent from the beginning. If you go out and buy yourself a Christmas tree with the intent to worship it then you have yourself an idol. If your intent is to place Christmas presents under it, it is just a Christmas tree. But when will you be doing this because most authorities believe that Christ was born in September. Shepherd’s would not be keeping watch over their flock by night in December. Their flock would be indoors with them. What is your intent for the season and the tree? Don’t worship the tree, you worship a free gift wrapped in swaddling clothes under the tree which is Christ the Lord. There was no room for him in the inn. Is there room for him in your heart?
