Note: Even though we do not know precisely when Jesus was born, and in fact can be fairly certain that it was not at the time of year when Christmas is traditionally observed, the following which made the email rounds during the 2003 holiday season is an interesting challenge to consider afresh what Jesus means in the life of a true believer. The article is not original with me, I have merely posted it for ease of future reference. I will be pleased to give credit if such can be verified.--Bob Young

You are cordially invited to A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!

Guest of Honor: Jesus Christ

Date: Every day.
(Traditionally, December 25, but He's always around, so the date is flexible.)

Time: Whenever you're ready.
(Please don't be late, though, or you'll miss out on all the fun!)

Place: In your heart. He'll meet you there.
(You'll hear Him knock.)

Attire: Come as you are. Grubbies are okay.
(He'll be washing our clothes anyway. He said something about new white robes and crowns for everyone who stays till the last.)

Tickets: Admission is free. He's already paid for everyone.
(He says you wouldn't have been able to afford it cost Him everything He had. But you do need to accept the ticket!!

Refreshments: New wine, bread, and a far-out drink He calls "Living Water," followed by a supper that promises to be out of this world!

Gift Suggestions: Your life. He's one of those people who already has everything else.
(He's very generous in return though. Just wait until you see what He has for you!)

Entertainment: Joy, Peace, Truth, Light, Life, Love, Real Happiness, Communion with God, Forgiveness, Miracles, Healing, Power, Eternity in Paradise, Contentment, and much more!
(All "G" rated, so bring your family and friends.)

R.S.V.P. Very Important!
(He must know ahead so He can reserve a spot for you at the table. Also, He's keeping a list of His friends for future reference. He calls it the "Lamb's Book of Life.")

Party being given by His Kids (that's us!!)!
Hope to see you there!
