‘Tis The Season

Do you remember the old Carol “‘Tis The Season to be jolly”? (Fa la la la, la la la) It talked about decking the halls with “boughs of holly” and all sorts of stuff like that. I am not sure of the origin of this carol, but it certainly does not seem to have much to do with Christmas does it?

But having said that, this certainly is the time to be jolly, isn’t it? After all, Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, of His coming into this world of sin. He came to live among us, living life as we do, except without sin, and finally took our place by taking our sin upon Himself so that we could come into a new relationship with God the Father.

During this Advent season it is appropriate for us to take the time to reflect on what Jesus has done for us so that we can truly appreciate the magnitude of what Jesus did for us. So in the very  real sense of the word, this truly is the season to be jolly — fa, la, la, la, la and all that stuff!

About faithfullyhis

My name is Charles Quail and I am a retired Baptist pastor who lives in Dunnville,a small town southeast of Hamilton, Ontario. I also write a weekly column for our local newspaper, The Sachem. It is a column that I have been writing for about eight years. I am married and have two grown daughters. My best buddy was my dog Max, who is now chasing bunny rabbits in sky. I miss him terribly. My reason for wanting to write a blog is friends have told me that this is the next logical step in my writing career. My hope and prayer is that many will be both challenged and blessed by what I write.
