Devotion of the Day

Day After Christmas

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
Hebrews 13:8

The day after Christmas is a day of broken toys, opened boxes, torn packages, thread and ribbons galore, the surprises all over, thank yous all said. A long time coming and a so soon gone! But, when Jesus Christ is born in our hearts, there are no sad days after, no waiting a year, no putting away the thank yous for another twelve months. Every day is Christmas when the Saviour lives within, the same today as yesterday. Each day brings fresh gifts from above, not a holiday but a holy day. And we are not merely the recipients, we give because He gave, we love because He loved, and we want to share Him with everybody. Once-a-year Christmas on the calendar is precious, but there is no “day after” when we can say, “Christ liveth in me.”
