Celebrate Christmas by embracing God's gift of life
By Kevin Fobbs

Christmas Day is near, and the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ should not only be based upon a notion of just giving gifts, sharing songs of good cheer. Why not open up one more present and present it to God and to Christ. Whether you are in Cleveland, Ohio, Tampa, Florida, or Atlanta, Georgia, give a commitment in the New Year to be accountable to the right to life.

Yes, that is correct; Christmas is the perfect opportunity to pray for life, but to commit to the right to life. Ever since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe V Wade case decision, far too many Americans have spent the last 41 years depriving over 50 million babies the right to be born. As we prepare to celebrate a very precious birth, understand that the birth of Jesus Christ birth and his life guaranteed eternal life for all ... born and unborn.

I am cognizant of the desire of political pundits who would want Americans to artfully dodge the Bethlehem manger in the room and the message that is as clear as the clarion call that was sent out by the Arch Angel Michael to announce that the messiah was to be born in Bethlehem. Luke 2: 10 11: "10But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christa the Lord." His birth is the reason for all seasons of life.

Why then is it in vogue to only want to speak of Christmas as just an activity to only exchange gifts, materials things, and feel-good songs and good cheer?

What is better to be committed to on Christmas Day, than to also being committed to embracing God's gift of sharing the gift of life with all born and yet to be born? Why not commit to holding all candidates for elective office responsible to protecting an unborn life of a baby and so that the child can be born? Is this not the true meaning of what the celebration of life and the holidays are all about... a cherished gift of life? Do we not desire to spend time with loved ones, so that we can sit around the Christmas tree, and get caught up to date with what the kids, grandkids, and family members have been doing in their lives?

Or, are we that caught up in only the life that we live or the lives of the ones who are in the room, home, or are in attendance at a Christmas event that we are attending, that we do not for a moment think about Jesus Christ's request that we show joy, caring, compassion and love for all? Is not future life, part of the "all" of humanity?

The Greatest Commandment

Matthew 22: 36–40
"36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'b 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'c 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

If Jesus Christ can be born, teach us to share our belief as he taught us, and die on the cross for our sins so that we are guaranteed life, it was not done just for those who were fortunate to hear his righteous words. His words were eternal, and given for those, like us, then unborn, but would still be able to benefit from his teachings and his sacrifice. Yes, that is correct, we were unborn, just as those young babies, 50 million plus, were unborn...and cruelly deprived of the right to live, to experience God's love as well as share in his heavenly grace.

So whether you are in Ohio, or Texas, or New York, Florida, Utah, Kentucky or Michigan, as you welcome Christmas Day morning to your household, commit to not just celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, but to truly celebrating Christmas by embracing God's Gift of Life. Go into the New Year committing to the right to life in 2012!
