We spend most of our Christmas season searching…searching for the perfect gift, searching for bargains, searching for the right decorations, searching for a parking spot. Many people, at the very first Christmas, missed the Christmas because they were too busy. They were looking for other things. The politicians missed the first Christmas. The business community missed the first Christmas. Even the religious establishment missed the first Christmas. They were looking at other things.
The only people who enjoyed the very first Christmas were the people who were looking for it. "The angels told the shepherds, `You'll find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And the shepherds said, 'Let's go and see!'" (Luke 2). They found Jesus because they were searching for Him. Later on another group, the wise men, found Jesus because they were seeking Him. They said, "We've come from the east and we've come to worship Him."
What are you going to find this Christmas? The Bible says, "Seek and you will find." If you look for Jesus, you're going to find Him.
