Another good goal would be to share the real meaning of Christmas with others by giving them the love of the Lord and His gift of eternal life. So many need . . .  read more

What is Christmas? The answer may just surprise you.

For many, Christmas is the time to think of Jesus Christ as a baby in a manger. While the birth of Christ is a special and miraculous event, it isn’t the primary focus. The central truth of the Christmas story is this: the Child of Christmas is God.

Christmas is not about the Savior’s infancy; it is about His deity. The humble birth of Jesus Christ was never intended to conceal the reality that God was being born into the . . .  read more

A season of thanksgiving

Jesus left the halls of heaven for us. And though He was rich, for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich. Jesus not only had to come down among us, but He had to be one of us! He had to become a member of the human community.

It’s that wonderful season again, a season to celebrate the Lord’s love in coming to earth to redeem us! It’s a season when people in the world are more open than usual to receiving a witness, and it’s a wonderful time to witness and reach out to others with our Savior’s love and truth. I won’t say that this could be our last Christmas, but it will be the last Christmas for many people. For many in the world, this will be their last chance to receive Jesus on earth.

It’s Christmastime—such a wonderful time of year! I love it when it comes around every year, because as Christmas approaches, people tend to appreciate others more. They’re more aware of the importance of family and friends, and they’re often more giving and willing to help the poor and needy. Generally speaking, there’s more love in the air during the Christmas season. I just love that!

Something in particular that I love about this time of year is that people . . .  read more

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
—Jeremiah 29:11 ESV

Adversity often has a way of catapulting us into situations and encounters with people that we would never have otherwise had the opportunity to meet. Sometimes the Lord opens doors through seemingly negative situations that would not have opened otherwise. If we stay attuned to the Lord and follow His plan, usually we eventually . . .  read more
