“The spirit of Christmas needs to superseded by the Spirit of Christ. The spirit of Christmas is annual; the Spirit of Christ is eternal. The spirit of Christmas is sentimental; the Spirit of Christ is supernatural. The spirit of Christmas is a human product; the Spirit of Christ is a divine person. That makes all the difference in the world.” ~Stuart Briscoe
People everywhere enjoy the giving of gifts and family gatherings during Christmas Holiday season. While gifts and gatherings are great, take time this holiday season to focus on the signs of significance. Create a family tradition of sharing the religious meanings of traditional holiday decorations because they are signs of significance.
In this 60 Seconds On Success Blog, I want to share some signs of significance with you. It is my prayer that you will share them with others.
The Christmas tree is in the shape of a triangle and points toward heaven. This is a sign of significance because the triangle represents the trinity, God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the Light of the World, thus giving us the significance of the lights on the tree. The tree is topped with a star, which is significant as it was a star that guided the wise men to the Christ child. The gifts that are given are a sign of charity and love.
The wreath is significant for a couple of reasons. The circular shape represents the divinity of God. Like God, it has no beginning and no end. Wreaths made with Evergreens are a sign of growth and everlasting life. While wreaths that are made using Holly branches, which have thorns, are significant because they represent the crown that was placed on the Jesus’ head. The red holly berries symbolizes the blood of Jesus that was shed on Calvary.
The shape of the candy cane is a sign that symbolizes a Shepard’s crook. This is significant because it reminds us that the Lord is our Shepard. The white strips on the candy cane signify the purity of Christ and the red ones represent the His healing stripes and His red blood that cleanses us of our sins.
These are just a few signs of significance for you to remember this holiday season. Keep Christ in Christmas and have a Blessed holiday.
