Christ “stress” mas…
Do you ever experience Christ “stress” mas? This is the condition where one gets so overwhelmed by getting ready for Christmas that they can’t enjoy it truly because of all the stress. Getting the presents wrapped, buying and cooking the food, cleaning the house, packing the car, or whatever you are doing can become downright overwhelming.
Here is the prescription for this stress disorder.
Day 1 – Read the Christmas story from Matthew 1:18-25
Day 2 – Read the Christmas story from Luke 2:1-20
Day 3 – Read the reason of Jesus’ coming in John 1:1-14
Day 4 – Read the arrest story from Matthew 26:1-75
Day 5 – Read the crucifixion story from Matthew 27:1-66
Day 6 – Read the resurrection story from 28:1-20
Day 7 – spend some extended time in prayer thanking Jesus for coming as a baby, dying for our sins, and being resurrected from the dead.
If this stress still is upon you then repeat steps 1 through 7. Remember, Jesus really is the reason for the season!
