This time of year, atheists gleefully point out that some of the Christmas traditions that we cherish have a background in various pagan rituals. They think that they are belittling Christianity because non-Christians observed these traditions first.
In fact, they are unwittingly (see Psalm 14:1) acknowledging the strength of Christianity. The kingdom of God has taken a season that was devoted to false religion and redeemed it for true worship, honoring the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let’s savor the victory as we joyfully celebrate the birth of our Savior!
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”—2 Corinthians 10:5
