As Christians, we are challenged every October 31st as to how we’re to engage in Halloween. The familiar chant of trick or treat will be ranted throughout the season, for this cause, we have to keep in mind that Jesus is not in the tricks; He’s all about the truth and the treats.
As believers of Jesus Christ, we hold different convictions as to how we choose to approach Halloween, but there is one thing we can all agree upon – certain elements of this day represents fear, evil, trickery and darkness that are inconsistent to our beliefs; which is the reason why Jesus Christ has come to earth to bring light into a dark world. “…Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life…” John 8:12
And for this cause, Jesus has no tricks up his sleeves; but enormous amounts of treats in his hands; He alone is love, peace, and joy! So during this season of Halloween, let us as Christians use this opportunity to be a light to those that are in darkness. Amen.
