A Very Merry Christmas to You & Yours!

It’s Christmas, so I’ll be brief. I just want to wish you a wonder, amazing, fantastic Christmas this 2017! I pray that it’s a memorable one for you, full of life and love, great sights and sounds, full bellies and full hearts, and endless good cheer. Most of all, I pray that on this day that is so often – and so easily – sullied by merchandizing and commercialism, you remember what it’s all about, and what the celebration is meant to commemorate in the first place. This is not about Santa. It’s not about presents, or food, or eggnog. It’s about the birth of our Savior, a babe born some 2000 years ago who ultimately paid a price for each of us that we could never pay ourselves. Thank God for Christmas!

Overflowing Blessings

Social pressure is not a new trend. While today it may have its digital edge, there has always been a mentality of “us” and “them.” For the Believer, the world at large is not our friend, and we are not to aspire to be like it. Since the beginning, there have been many who have opposed the call, who have stood defiantly against our faith. Enemies, some may say. Even so, we have with us the Lord…

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” – Psalm 23:5

A Merry Christmas for Wise Men

Last Christmas, my wonderful wife gave me an amazing gift. She found a collectible, hand-made set of the “first Christmas” gifts: the gold, frankincense, and myrrh that the wise men, or Magi, presented to Jesus when they found Him. I loved these finely-crafted reproductions, and thinking back on them today, I thought it could lead to a nice Christmas post. This week, a special Christmas day interruption of our ongoing examination, we will look at the figures behind those wonderful “first Christmas” gifts: the Wise men of the East.
