TODAY ALL CHRISTENDOM IS IN MEDITATION ON THE GREAT THINGS that God has wrought. There is no doubt that all of us who are assembled in this auditorium know who we are, thus the whole Christmas message takes on added significance. It is good that all Christendom pauses to celebrate the Birth of The Christ, and it is more important that they pause to celebrate the Birth of The Christ amidst all the affairs of life, than that they get the right day. There is no question about the fact that he was not born on the 25th., of December, but the important thing is that this is the day when all Christendom has been recognizing the birth of The Christ, and continues to recognize the birth of The Christ in face of all the opposition that does not want the recognition of the Birth of The Christ known to the world or witnessed to it. THE SIGNIFICANT THING IS, WHAT TOOK PLACE THAT DAY.
I listened to a minister over the air who said: ‘It isn’t important how Christ came, it isn’t important who he was, and it is just important that we follow his example and that we accept his teaching. Well that is the trouble with the church today, there are a lot of people who think that the most important thing ISN’T IMPORTANT! We have a lot of people who think the same thing, the most important phases of their independence and their national life and their constitution. But this Clergyman says that it is not important who HE was. But we tell you that the most important about the birth of The Christ is who HE was. The second most important thing is that HE came, the way He said He would come. And He came to a people, and for a people HE had promised he would come to.
