Keeping Christmas Well: Living in Light of the Incarnation of Christ

Written by Mark Roberts

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to keep Christmas well, not just on one special day or during one special season of the year?

In Charles Dickens’s beloved story, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge starts out as anything but a lover of Christmas. For him, Christmas is a “Humbug!” But, after his encounter with the Spirits of Christmas, Scrooge is a changed man. As Dickens observes, Scrooge “knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge.”

What would it mean to live each day in light of the fact that God came to dwell among us in the baby born in a manger? Our hope is that this devotional guide will help you to pause and reflect as you determine what it would mean for you to "keep Christmas well".
