While religious symbols can be important, the church has focused perhaps too much on them instead of the underlying reality they reflect.
The manger is feeding animals again. The cross is vacant. The tomb is empty.
May we befriend and honor the One who is still alive and visited each of those symbols for a very specific purpose…to provide us the opportunity to claim full forgiveness.
Focus on the living Jesus…not the symbols He used. Jesus is alive and He desires to meet with you daily. Jesus desires you to finish the work He started. He is with us always, to the end of the ages. If I can personally help you in growing closer to your Creator, Jesus, please let me know…I will walk with you.
