Reconnect One: Ugly Christmas SweaterDecember 22, 2020
How fun are ugly Christmas sweaters? The more ridiculous, outdated and goofy, the better. We’ve even created entire parties around them.
We get a lot of laughter and joy from putting on our Christmas sweaters each year— even if they are falling apart and truly, ridiculously ugly.
This year, when you pull yours out of the attic or the back of the closet, think about it as a visual example of an eternal truth.
Outwardly, we may be wasting away, but inwardly we are renewed day by day.
As Paul reminded the church in Corinth: we are not the treasure, we are merely jars of clay holding the treasure.
The same holds true for us. Just like the ugly Christmas sweater, the outer shell isn’t the whole story. We are nonetheless temples of the Holy Spirit in which God is pleased to dwell.
So here’s an idea— put on Christ this Christmas. Wear Him proudly— on the inside, and out.
