Do They Know it's Christmas?

A gentle reminder to my preacher brothers on this Christmas Eve: preach Jesus.

Not "hope," not "peace," not "joy," unless it is hope, peace, and joy specifically personified in Jesus.

For he himself is our peace . . .
-- Ephesians 2:14a

I still have two Christmas Eve services stuck in my head. One was for a neighborhood service we used to do - A Candlelight Service - where the preacher spoke on Satan. Another, at a different church where the preacher spoke on "Dying Well." These were so frighteningly bad that even years later they still bounce around my cranium.

Preach Jesus indeed!
