THE WISDOM OF GOSPEL HOLIDAYS AND SEASONS.
Some scrupulous brethren fail to appreciate the value of the world having recognized holidays and seasons like Christmas, Easter, etc for the Church to influence the world mass media and business community with the Gospel message without hindrance.
I think rather that we need more Gospel related holidays and seasons of whatever name, period or reason for such free evangelistic impact. If people misuse such days as they do any other day, the Church should not withdraw but rather double their efforts to make far more effectual use of such holidays or seasons.
(25) And it shall come to pass, when you are come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.
(26) And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean you by this service?
(27) That you shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’S Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshiped.
