“So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense”—1 Corinthians 1:23
USA Today reported that a Pennsylvania family was ordered to take down their Christmas decoration displaying the name of Jesus after a neighbor complained it was offensive. The homeowner’s association claimed the display was a sign—not a decoration—which is a violation of the rules.
The name of Jesus is persistently and progressively being rejected and removed from our schools and courts. The intent is to completely strip it from all society. There’s nothing new under the sun. 2000 years ago, Jesus was a stumbling block for the Jews because he didn’t meet their expectations of a Savior. The residents and leaders of Jerusalem failed to recognize who Jesus was. The prophecy about Jesus fell on deaf ears (Acts 13:27).
Like the believers in the early church, Christians will be intimidated and warned “not to speak or teach in the name of Jesus” (Acts 4:18). But we must persist in proclaiming Christ for two reasons: First, Paul said, “God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Second, Jesus said, “If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).
In our world today, especially during Christmas, there are many who still stumble over Jesus. The mere mention of his name reminds people they are sinners. May this be the season you turn away from your sins and surrender your life to Christ. For Jesus said, “Blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me” (Matthew 11:6).
