Let Christmas be a day for shaking hands with each other and saying: “Come, let us forget ourselves. Let us think about our Savior and his work for God the Father and for the Holy Spirit. Let us help him, rather than being lazy Christians who do nothing but feast. Let us work, let us suffer and endure, and even die in our Lord Jesus. Let our only concern be to see that his work goes on; that the glory of God is spread through all of heaven, over all peoples and over all the depths; that the streams of the Holy Spirit come again when we have died to the flesh and walk in newness of life, and can come before God as his children, through the Lord Jesus.”

Let Christmas be a time of renewed covenant.
