As a child I loved "It's a Charlie Brown Christmas." When it would come on TV I would be glued to the set.
I loved it when Snoopy and Woodstock would decorate his doghouse and then win the decorating contest.
I loved it when all of the needles would fall off the tree Charlie Brown bought.
But the part I loved the most is when Linus shared the true meaning of Christmas and recited Luke's account of the Birth of Jesus.
I never thought it was odd that they suddenly turned off the lights and cast the spotlight of the auditorium on him as he shared. Because, you see, as a child, to me Christmas was all about a lot of things-presents, decorations, fun with family and the story of the Birth of Jesus.
Once I gave my life to Jesus, suddenly I knew why the spotlight was shown on Linus.....because that is what the spotlight should shine on each Christmas-the Birth of Jesus Christ.
We have one week left until Christmas Day. Will you join me in shining the spotlight on the Birth of Jesus?
