People have expectations around the holidays and they never realize the truth. They just don’t know. On Christmas Eve people gathered round in the church building for the candlelight service singing “Silent Night”, they must sing Silent Night because they think that Jesus might not award them with eternal gifts, some of their thinking is, if they don't sing to Jesus then they won't receive from Jesus. They must sing Christmas carols door to door because the best gift you could receive is a surprise concert at midnight when you want some sleep. That’s not true! Not true at all! Expectations expectations.
Everybody drains themselves, mentally, physically, and spiritually. They try all these ideas because they think it’s the truth when in reality it really isn’t.
The best gift you could receive isn’t your favorite toy, book, movie, or a flat screen TV you’ve always wanted. The best gift that you could receive is the one and only Jesus Christ. He will give you your needs not because you want them, but because you need them and because He was born to distribute them to everybody. Ask Him to guide you in the Christmas season, whether it be next year or the year after that. Ask Him to show you the truth and He will give the answers. You have to let it happen. Will you let it happen?
