Too Much Jesus?

 

As you’ve noticed, many of the stories in Christmas Jelly are about Jesus.

He is what Christmas is about. We make no apologies for making him front and center of this book.

Once I heard a powerful sermon by one of my favorite preachers, Jason Townley. As the message ended and crowd left, I shook his hand. “Jason, you did well, but I have one complaint.”

His face dropped.

“You talked a little too much about Jesus.”

I thought he was going to hit me with his five-pound Bible.

We cannot talk too much about Jesus.

We cannot write too much about him.

It’s Christmas. His birthday celebration.

He belongs not only in the center but also at the height.

Far above all others.
