Christmas Condensed

December 11, 2017

“If we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would be the words: “God with us.” We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!”

John MacArthur

Matthew 1:23

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Keep Christ in Christmas

December 9, 2017

“Happy Holidays” is what you hear when shopping this year. Store cashiers and employees are trained not to say “Merry Christmas.” We must not offend anyone. What a shame. Just one more way the enemy has used to take Christ out of Christmas.

As Christians our response should be “Merry Christmas”. There would be no Holy day without Jesus. Let us honor our Lord every chance we get. Keep Christ in Christmas by your words but more importantly keep Him first in your heart. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Matthew 1:18

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus Light of the World

December 8, 2017

Christmas lights are so beautiful. Darkness falls and even the most barren property, the scrawniest tree, the ugly streets become a sparkling sight to see. Some people spend a lot of money for the lights of Christmas. Others may only have a little string of lights or a few candles. The mall and shops are full of glowing lights. There are people who refuse to light their home or have a tree.However a person may feel about decorating for Chrismas they still enjoy the sight of what others have done.

Jesus is the light of the world. His light shines in the hearts of people who believe in Him and have trusted Him as their Savior. Others receive the benefits He brings into the world. He blesses the just and the unjust.This season when you enjoy the decorations and especially the lights think about Jesus and the light He brings to your life.

John 8:12 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.

Two Times a Year

December 2, 2017

The church is decorated for Christmas, wreaths, garlands, lights, beautiful flowers. The choir is prepared, the Pastor has his message ready and the congregation comes to worship.

There are two times a year when the churches are full, Christmas and Easter. Both times are to celebrate the coming of Jesus. Christmas to celebrate His birth and Easter to celebrate his coming out of the grave and victory over death.

Are you a two times a year church goer? If that is the only time you worship Jesus, you may miss His third coming when He will meet born again Christians in the air.

Then the churches that preach the gospel should be empty. Think about going to church and it is almost empty. No Pastor, no choir, only a few people who missed the true message of Jesus birth. God sent His Son as a gift that we might be saved. Do not be left to go to an empty church. Accept God’s gift of salvation today, then go to church and celebrate Jesus’ birth and you can truly worship from your heart.

Galatians 4:4-7 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

God’s Gift to You

November 26, 2017

God gave us the greatest gift that will last for all eternity. Presents we give and receive here are only temporary, and maybe will last for a little while. You can receive the gift that will last forever. Ask Jesus to forgive your sins and invite Him to be your Savior. It will be the best gift you will ever get and this Christmas you will truly have the joy you have never known.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

November 25, 2017

Thanksgiving Day is now past and most people are now getting ready for the biggest holiday of the year. Shopping, wrapping, cooking and cleaning is primary on the minds of everyone. In all of that preparation we tend to forget what Christmas is all about. There is a saying, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” How true. Do not neglect your devotion time with Him. Bible reading and prayer are more important when we are busy. It keeps our focus on Jesus and helps us get through the work and preparation for the Holidays.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Thankful for Forgiveness

November 18, 2017

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Souls Won in October

November 3, 2017

Most of the results for October are in and over 325 decisions to follow Jesus were recorded. That does not include the Alabama National Fair which is still open through this weekend. There are also other events Saturday. Pray for more souls to be won this weekend. SOS Events workers are the fishermen and God brings them in. PRAISE THE LORD!

Mark 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
