The English have the 12 days of Christmas in song.  The high churches have the 24 (ish) days of advent.  Here at Crave Something More, I’ll be writing a series called the “21 Days of CSM Christmas.”  Starting December 5 and finishing on Christmas Day, I will write once a day about all things Christmas, in the hopes that we will all continue to see Jesus as the greatest satisfaction to our soul’s deepest cravings.

Day 10:  A Christmas Acronym

If acronyms can work for the Psalmist, why can’t we try one? Here’s a shot at a Christmas acronym.

Christ
Has
Risen
In
Splendor
To
Make
All*
Sons**

Wait, that’s really more of an Easter acronym.  How about:

Eternal
Alpha
Sent
To
Emancipate
Rebels

That’s a little more like Christmas.  We don’t often think of Easter at Christmas, but the incarnation, and the crucifixion, and the resurrection, and the ascension are four strands of the cord given to us by God for our redemption from sin, emancipation from slavery, resurrection in glory, and eternal life with the One for whom all things exist.

Be thankful this Christmas that Jesus came into this world in the most remarkable fashion, and when you think of the Christmas child, think of the Man who would one day stretch out his hands so we might be His, and He ours.

For the rest of the 21 Days of Crave Something More Christmas, go here.

*All, meaning all who believe.
**And daughters.
