"To celebrate" means to observe; to commerate with festivities... and I don't participate in this. I am very fortunate to live in an area where we hardly ever see more that 5 children at our door... I do pass out candy to them - is that "celebrating"? I do not wish anyone "Happy Hallowe'en"; nor do I make Hallowe'en cards and such.
I realize that hallowe'en is a fun time for children - a time of candy, games, costumes; a time for scary stories, bobbing for apples, and so on. However, I also believe that there are people who are serious about celebrating the darker side of this event... and that disturbs me. I believe it is a spiritually dangerous time and that we as Christians must cover ourselves and our families in fervent prayer.
And - we must stand firm in the knowledge and belief that God is in control of it all - He is our Security and our Salvation; our Refuge and our Victory!
Praise His Name!
Romans 8: 38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,
neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers,
neither height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We are secure in Him!
We are His!
He is Risen!
We are victorious!
May you be blessed and safe this day! May your hearts be full of praise and thankfulness to a Loving God!
Resting in HIM,
