Ho, Ho, Ho

… “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” Revelation 4:8 (NKJV)

There is a red suited cheerful man that adorns the world at Christmas time. And he often states “Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!” I know you’ve seen him.

There are many times I’ve considered this an empty greeting.

I am reminded of John 8:7 and Jesus’ words, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”

Jesus is the reason for the season I have no choice but to agree. Christmas is when I celebrate the word becoming flesh because of love for you and me.

Those empty greetings have a way of bringing me to my knees. So when the world proclaims HO, HO, HO, I’ll think He’s Omnipotent, He’s Omnipresent, He’s Omniscient.

Though He is supreme He Omnipotent-ly Loves You.

Though He is and always has been with you. He Omnipresent-ly Loves You. Though He knows every thought in your mind, heart, and soul He Omnisciently Loves You.


I thank you Lord that HO HO HO has taken on a new meaning.

      I remember being the kid in elementary school that wrote Christmas as Christ-mas. Just because it drove my teacher crazy. She kept insisting we write it as x-mas.
      I’ll admit it wasn’t until later that I realized why I was so upset about it.

      Merry Christmas to you too!
