Cancel Christmas!? :(

Yep, that is what the news reporter said, “Christmas is canceled!”, and if it is on the news, you have to believe it.

Well, I’m not sure if you have to believe the news headlines or not but that’s a discussion for another day. The truth is you cannot cancel God, and you cannot cancel the birth of Jesus Christ.

Luke 2:4-7 NIV

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

God is everlasting and so are His actions. You cannot undo the birth of Jesus, and you cannot cancel Christmas. You see Christmas is so much bigger than all the things going on in the world. It is bigger than a virus; it is bigger than all of man’s agendas.

Christmas is God’s plan for redemption.

So the next time you hear a news story saying “Christmas is canceled”, just say out loud and with joy in your voice, “Nope, it’s not! You cannot cancel God!”
