I watched this really cute rendition of the Christmas story here:
(Do watch it.)
What really made me smile.. is the part at the end… when the kids pull out the glow sticks and have a party…
the voice of the kid says: “then there was a party.”
Now that’s an invite I won’t refuse!!!
I think so many invites to the Jesus movement… the relationship with Jesus leaves out the sweet promise “then there was a party”
Maybe because Christians throw a negative stigma on the word “party”
“Oh dear, I am a Christian, I am not allowed to party.” Are you kidding me?
Jesus says to Zaccheus, “come down from that tree…I’m coming for a party (meal)
It was said of Jesus that he was always hanging out with “the sinners” and they all seemed to “party”
And a wedding party, Jesus prolonged the evening… with making more wine.
Yes, its a serious matter, what Jesus did for us.
Because of His life and death we are set free, we are forgiven…
Yet there is more…
There is a party.
I am sorry for the poor invites Christians give when they exclude the invitation to the party.
(Yes, I hear the fact… that we have to take up our cross… etc etc…), however
Then there was a party…
